Silverlight Hallowe’en Card

Love this Hallowe’en card creator from Archetype:


Built using Silverlight, it enables you to carve your own pumpkin, add suitably demonic or gremlin-like sound effects using Silverlight’s built-in microphone integration support, and then share the final result with a friend. This is really cool – and a good example of the kind of experience that remains the preserve of plug-ins for now at least, even with the strong HTML5 support now emerging in modern browsers.

After a very messy weekend with some friends carving the real deal, my kids are going to have a lot of fun with this – try it out!
