Nerd – Yes!! HTML5 – The Wilderness Downtown


So this site has been floating around the office for a little while now. I truly believe this Arcade Fire’s Experiment is a amazing example of the powers of HTML5. I had sometime to speak with a good friend and technician about the technical aspects. As seen in the Chrome Experiments details, the new audio, video and canvas tags in HTML5 are used to fullest.

Its pretty crazy. The application uses a combination of custom size windows for video and other content, along with a custom rendered map that utilizes the Google Maps API. Also including a postcard aspect for an interactive and personal touch.

More than anything this shows us the power of HTML5 and what the internet has ahead for us.
