4D movies taking 3D a step further by enabling audience members to utilize all their senses. If there is a rainy scene, a spray of water will fall on you. If there are snakes on the ground, the floor beneath you will shift and slither. If someone is barbequing in the background, the smell of burgers will make your mouth water.

Patatap is a “portable animation and sound kit” that functions somewhere between a browser game and a musical instrument. Click any key and Patatap will play a correlating sound and animation.

Every time you hit the space bar, it swaps out the ‘font,’ so to speak, and you get a new series of pips and squeaks to explore. There are at least five completely unique variations with their own visuals, and the sounds are as varied as a human voice, sci-fi blips, and a set that’s almost like having a jazz band at your fingertips.
