Head over here to try it or if you’re too lazy, watch the gameplay video below!

File this under: “If you’re really bored”. Matthew Rothenberg has created a website that tracks every time someone tweets an emoji, in real-time. It’s actually kinda scary how often people are using that tears of joy emoji. I have to admit I spent a minute watching and waiting until one of the bottom emojis was used.

The Singularity refers to the moment Artificial Intelligence will exceed that of Human Intelligence and our capacity to control it. Scientists believe this event will take place around the year 2045. Lucky for us, the artists behind Countdown To Singularity are taking this existential threat seriously. Bas van de Poel, the project’s founder and curator, asked contributors to explore the different ways AI could bring us down. The result is a series of scenarios ranging from the development of amoral mechanized weapons systems to the slightly more mundane idea that we could all eventually be turned into paperclips.
