Stuff Office Cat's Diary – 6/11/12

Office Cat tastes the rainbow, plays with mice and exercises his Curiosity in today's news round-up

Fable creator's Curiosity app goes live

Office Cat is curious. Well, he would be, he's a cat. But he's particularly intrigued by Fable creator Peter Molyneux's latest creation, Curiosity. The app – which is now available on the iOS App Store – invites users to chip away at an enormous cube in a bid to reveal the secret within. Chip away at the cubelets and you'll earn coins, which you can use to buy power-ups – and the fact that it takes 3 billion coins to net a Diamond Chisel gives you some idea of the numbers involved. Only one person will get to find out what's hidden away inside the cube – Office Cat wonders whether it'll be some random app downloader who has no idea of the significance of what they've uncovered.

A fastidious feline, Office Cat likes to put everything in its proper place. So he's delighted by this Skittles sorting machine, which uses colour detection to divvy up the rainbow-hued sweets by colour.
