Peeking into HTML5

September 19, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

We all remember when Steve Jobs took a dig at Flash don’t we? Looking ahead, Steve Jobs did mention the upcoming phenomenon that we all know as HTML5. I personally do not know anything about coding yet…but after looking at what I’m going to show you, I’m very interested in knowing how things work in that space. Though there is a little bit of preparation that you need to do to view this website…

1) This website will only work in Safari or Google Chrome

2) Make sure your speakers are on

3) After you have interacted with the website, come back to this post and read the second part of it

If you reading this, you have viewed the “interactive film” on the website which was customized for you just based on your address where you grew up.

Well firstly, it might not work for everyone, it didn’t work for me the first time as Google Maps in India don’t have enough data to be used in this film. For me, the film worked in parts, it was interactive as you could see the flock of birds react to your cursor. You could move the windows to other parts of the screen. The concept has nostalgia written all over it, for some people, this might just be an amazing experience. And for some, its just another music video.

I would like to know your thoughts on it…
