Last year in August, Google released "The Wilderness Downtown", a music experience that brought together HTML5 and JavaScript, as well as the Google Maps and Street View APIs. Today, Google introduced a newest project called "3 Dreams of Black", made with WebGL, HTML5 and JavaScript, and designed for modern browsers like Google Chrome.

"3 Dreams of Black is a visual voyage through three dream worlds, told through rich 2D drawings and animations that are interspersed with interactive 3D sequences. At various points in this web experience, you can take control with your computer's mouse and guide your journey through the unfolding narrative. You can even contribute to the dream by creating your own relics using a 3D model creator. Some of the best user creations will be integrated into the experience and become a part of others" "3 Dreams" exploration.

""3 Dreams of Black" is set to the song "Black" off the album ROME, presented by Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi, featuring Jack White and Norah Jones on vocals, to be released soon on the record label EMI. Because it's built in WebGL, it requires a WebGL-supported browser like Chrome, and Windows Vista / Mac OS X 10.6 and above to help ensure that your computer has the necessary and up-to-date graphics drivers. We hope you'll take a moment to dive into the experience and the developer resources at www.ro.me," Google stated.

For those of you who may have hardware constraints, Google put together a short video that provide a glimpse into this unique experience:
