I was really blown away with Desmos. They just keep getting better. I found out this week they have apps now for i0S and Android and let you upload pictures.

I found this cool retro sci-fi book cover on Sadburro. I wish I could get my car loaded up with formulas like this.
I wish I could get this poster for my new office. Found on iMathmaticus.
