They were amazed to see how easily they can change content of any site by using X-Ray Goggle. Thimble showed them new way to build cards and greetings exactly  in the way they liked so that they can express their feelings with the remix, popcorn tool brought out curious artist within them.

The 3D view tool in Developer Toolbar amazed them most they all started laughing and applauded for us, we got some remarkable comments from them, here we have tried to list few of them

Here are few words spoke by attendees after watching the remixes:
