You can even submit your own unsatisfying film to the “Unsatisfying Challenge” at unsatisfying.tv. How satisfying!

Quick, Draw!

Need a five minute break? Quick, Draw! is a brilliant little game to waste a few minutes on. Even better, by playing it you are also helping it to become cleverer. Intrigued? Here’s a short film to explain why…

Turns out we are really good at drawing ovens, but not so good when it comes to zebras. Who knew?!
