Some recent coolness with Silverlight 2 momentum


You just have to see this to believe it. This has been a strangely popular Internet play toy, and many videos have been recorded. Here's more from their site...

Boy grabs sled. Boy rides sled. A simple concept yields endless fun and the latest Internet Phenomenon is born! In Line Rider the player draws their own landscape with a simple pencil tool creating as many ramps, hills, and jumps as they can imagine. Then they send a virtual sledder careening down the course until he wipes out. The possibilities in Line Rider are only limited by the player's imagination. Play Line Rider™ Now!

There are hundreds of LineRider videos on YouTube. Now, McDonald's is involved with a contest (see an interesting video here). 


NBC Olympics
