How to Fake your Location in Google Chrome
… Earlier, websites would use the IP address to determine your approximate location but with the HTML5 Geolocation API, web browsers can more accurately detect your location using data from GPS, Wi-Fi networks, cell towers, Bluetooth and the computer’s IP address.

… The option to fake your geolocation is not available in the DevTools of Mozilla Firefox but you can use the Geolocator addon to send any preferred location to the HTML5 Location API.

Play Super Mario 64 in Your Browser
You can now play Super Mario 64 in your Web browser, with computer science student and Unity developer Erik Roystan Ross having recreated the game using Unity. Unfortunately, it’s only the first level of Super Mario 64, but it IS presented in glorious HD. Which is a bonus.
Ross recreated the game (minus a few minor details) to demonstrate his Super Character Controller project, and he has no plans to either fix any bugs or recreate any more of the game. Still, provided you have the Unity Web Player installed, this should provide a few hours of fun.

For all my students.
