With all the recent hype surrounding HTML5 it’s easy to forget how innovative the Flash platform continues to be. Flash video in particular has taken a bashing of late from the Apple camp and with Adobe so eager to defend video in Flash many seem to have forgotten that Flash can do so much more. If you don’t believe me then take a look at the excellent video below that highlights just a fraction of the great content made possible thanks to the Flash platform.

If that has whetted your appetite then pop over to Michaël Chaize’s blog where you can find links to many of the applications shown above. Some of my favourites include an excellent demonstration of face recognition, an AS3 voice recognition library and a fantastic World Construction Kit that utilises the C++ Box2D physics library, running via Adobe Alchemy.

Flash has been driving innovation on the web for years and will continue to do so.

  1. Hey Chris! I’m glad you liked my demo! Where did you get the SCNF borne revolution demo app? I’d love to play with it as well.

    btw. Just found out you live in Glasgow! Give me a shout if you fancy a pint – I live in Edinburgh now, but coming to Glasgow twice a week usually 🙂

  2. Hey Og2t! Yeah loved your demo and some great stuff on your web site too! As for the SCNF borne revolution demo, it was part of the video on Michaël Chaize’s site – I don’t actually have the source for that but Michaël might be able to help you out there.

    I’ve been talking to a few devs about getting a Flash meet-up sorted out so I’ll give you a shout if you fancy coming along. I see you’re a C64 fan so I’ll need to remember to wear my Commodore t-shirt 🙂
