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.
