Pipes

This is really cool, apparently you can use it to aggregate RSS feeds, or make a super-awesome multi-search program. Or just about anything else you can come up with. It uses the massive bandwidth available of Yahoo, and the magic of Ajax to let you make your own mashup, just by dragging and dropping little objects.

Think The Incredible Machine except with websites and stuff.

To see what this thing is truly capable of, check out this: 10 Pre-made searchable pipes.

This is the coolest thing I've ever seen. I have absolutely NO idea what I'm doing, but making things connect together is mad fun.

Yeah; if you're curious for more, there's a video of the authors talking about Pipes on Google Tech Talks out there.

Just connecting the pipes together makes me feel like Brainiac... or Robocop.

Oooh I'm so cool, look what I made!
