Web Lab itself is both online and physical. Its aim is to bring the workings of the internet to life and to inspire everyone about the possibilities of the web. I recommend having a play with this set interactive collaborative experiences either within the museum or online. But don’t miss all the great writing that accompanies it. It provided me with the most straight-forward succinct explanations of new browser technology that I have found to date.
If you have heard of these – HTML5, Canvas, RTC, WebGL – and want to understand what they actually mean written in plain-English for the non developer this is the place to go browser technology
You can also get a really good overview of the project with videos showing how the computer science works behind the experiments on YouTube
And if you like messing around with music have a look at another favourite Chrome experiment Jam With Chrome made by @ToolofNA @DinahmoeSTHML with beautiful graphics by artist and illustrator @RobJamesBailey. It uses Web Audio and Web Socket technologies which you’ll have already found out about above.
It’s all, of course, a great advert for Google Chrome and requires you to download the latest version of Chrome.
