The best website in this series of 5 unique websites. One who loves to know about the space or the know about your existence once browse this website. 100,000 Stars is a 3D visualization of the stellar neighborhood created for the Google Chrome web browser. 100,000 Stars shows the real location of over 100,000 nearby stars. If you zoom around your screen then it reveals 87 major named stars like Alpha Coronae Borelie, Vega, Sirius, Van Maanen’s Star, etc, and our solar system. The galaxy view is an artist’s rendition.

The concept of this website is really sweet, the perspective of thinking that your stress is nothing in comparison with this huge galaxy and make you believe that your life is good is really nice. This one-minute meditation website went viral in 2015. Marc Balaban created this simple but creative website. His work has been written up in over ten publications in three languages and has received well over half a million page views in just a week. There are few websites that really focus on thoughts based on thinking, this is a great example among them.

The previous version is already famous for Little Alchemy & this is version 2 of this game. There are 4 fundamental elements ( Air, Earth, Fire, Water ) and you have to make 720 elements out of these 4 fundamental elements. Although the combinations of elements aren’t usually scientifically accurate, they would provide a good starting point for discussing how what’s represented in the game. Little Alchemy 2 equates these concepts with specific elements; One can even make their own combinations and it is really amazing to see the output. I have managed to make 42 elements out of 720, start your game in a free time, and comment on how many elements you have made. This is one of the best of the 5 unique websites

XKCD is a webcomic created in 2005 by American author Randall Munroe. The comic’s tagline says that it is “A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language”. Munroe states on the comic’s website that the name of the comic is not an initialism, but “just a word with no phonetic pronunciation”. You will be happy to see the presentation of these comics. This is an interesting website so I count this in 5 unique websites.
5. Hotspot 3D
Language Used: Angular.js & CSS

This is a website where you can compare two flagships or two mid-range mobiles side by side with 3D interactive models, This feels real and a 360 overview gives you a lot of understanding about the models. Though there are youtube videos where you can find both the phones, side by side but this is unique. The sizes of the phones are real and give you a better realization before you buy your next flagship. So I included it in my list of 5 unique websites.
Internet is vast and every second there is a website live on the internet I want to cover some unique websites among them in terms of their functionality, thoughts behind that, etc. This is a series and this is the first 5 Unique Websites in this series. Thanks for Reading.
I love to write.
