In October 2012, I helped Matt Parker build a computer entirely from dominoes. There's an explanatory video and worksheets at ThinkMaths..

I created some Javascript toys for Matt Parker's book Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension, as well as an explanatory post on the Aperiodical.

I've built a 3D image gallery for the MegaMenger project.


My wholly original AR Monster-catching game currently runs on Crome for Android only. I'm told the Kindle Fire browser also works.

The Connecting Wall is a game from BBC4’s Only Connect game show. Their version requires Flash; mine is entirely CSS and JavaScript, so it should run on your telephone.

3Doku is a 3D version of sudoku. (Well, OK, it is a 2D version of sudoku wrapped around a 4×4×4 cube.) Also available on Android.

I make a block-matching game for a family wedding.

4tris is a version of Connect 4 with added havoc caused by lines vanishing and forming combos.

Gravity is a game not unlike Worms or Angry Birds. Two players take turns hurling missiles at each other. The twist is that the missiles must travel through (or round) a solar system, where each planet exerts its own gravitational pull.


Charm lets you quickly find that Unicode symbol you were looking for, by typing a portion of its name. Charm is also available as an Android app.

My Mobile Cycle Map for Manchester is a wrapper around the web version of TFGM's maps.


The Thingometer is a way of visualising electoral polling data by morphing the candidates into one another. It's for the 2015 UK elections, but feel free to fork it for others.

Check out my Android apps on the Google Play Store.

@823years is a Twitterbot response to the various banal or insane ‘interesting facts about today’s date’ memes that spread periodically.

@fishexist is a Twitterbot which uses Markov chains trained on No Such Thing As A Fish to generate interesting facts. Also available as apparel.

I also dabble in science communication. I especially enjoy doing the research/comedy night Bright Club. Apparently other people enjoy it too.

I made the website for the Greater Manchester Skeptics Society. The logo was designed by Polyp.
