Few weeks back, I wrote about how Html5 is slowly (but surely) becoming the only true cross platform technology, therefore becoming a significant player in mobility, supported by iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, and other leading mobile platforms, providing advanced user interface, offline capabilities and rich media/videos.
Today I would like to introduce to you some great sample sites using Html5 technologies (canvas drawing, videos, animations and more) which I found at makeuseof, they really show the strengths of html5 in terms of visual effects, user interface, media and more.
As someone who's developing using the database/offline capabilities of Html5 for mobile devices, I can tell you that it's pretty much amazing that all of this can run on practically any "modern" device even while offline.
Check it out:
What's better than a great mashup including Radiohead’s greatest song ever Idioteque with some drawing of Thom Yorke which is drawn as the song progresses.

HTML5 allows you to to much with video on the web. In addition to letting you play it without your web browser, with no plugin, it allows you to manipulate that video. This demo shows how you can “Blow up” the pixels of a video while playing: http://craftymind.com/factory/html5video/CanvasVideo.html.
