  • A Detailed Map of Jewish Literature: Take an adventure through the city and schlep to these landmarks found in Jewish literatur. See the full map on Tablet.
  • Google Street View With Sound: Because as if Google Street View isn’t creepy enough, one company decided to add sounds to certain scenes like pigeons flying overhead, street performers and babies crying. FastCo.Design spotlights how they were able to mimic the difference in sound when you got closer to or further away from a scene.
  • Would You Pick Up A Hitchhiking Robot?: hitchBOT has his (her? its?) thumb up hoping for a caring stranger to stop and help him make his way across Canada. Daily Dot reports that the robot can only answer basic questions. So I guess it won’t be singing along to Journey with you.
  • Derek Jeter Head Corn Maze: To commemorate #2’s final season, a New Jersey farm decided to make a corn maze in the shape of Jeter’s head.  Gothamist says you can make your way through the the Yankee’s face starting September 20th.
