Google's new "Web Lab" beta a new exhibition launches today, "online" and "at the Science Museum in London," aims to inspire people around the world by showcasing the magic that the science and technology makes possible.
This idea that science and technology can inspire people is one that we hold close to our hearts. It's also the thought behind
"Web Lab is a set of five physical installations housed in the Science Museum in London. Each of the five experiments--Universal Orchestra, Data Tracer, Sketchbots, Teleporter and Lab Tag Explorer--showcases a modern web technology found in Chrome to explore a particular theme in computer science. For example, the Universal Orchestra experiment uses WebSockets to demonstrate real time collaboration as people from around the world make music together on custom-built robotic instruments housed in the Science Museum," explains Jayme Goldstein, Product Marketing Manager, Chrome, on behalf of the Web Lab team.
You can interact with them in person at the museum, or from anywhere in the world at chromeweblab.com.
"By opening up the museum experience to the world online, Web Lab doesn't play by the usual rules--a visitor's location and museum opening hours no longer matter," wrote Goldstein.
