Stimulant is a development firm with offices in San Francisco and Seattle. For the launch of IE9 Beta, they came up with WebVizBench, an interactive visualization of many years of playlist data from local, independent radio station KEXP.
In the video below, Josh Santangelo walks us through a demo that shows off the amazing web experiences that HTML5 allows developers to build when it’s running on a fully hardware accelerated browser like IE9 Beta. The updated version allows you to drill into KEXP Playlist data by DJ as well as by date.
You can try the demo for yourself 2nd link below. Since this demo is designed to push your browser to its limits you’ll get a different experience depending on which browser you’re using. There’re a number of keyboard shortcuts you can use in the demo to turn on extra features to further push your browser:
v – Turns on/off video background
a – Turns on/off alpha transparency
s – Turns on/off scaling
r – Turns on/off rotation
