A friend of mine just shared this with me and I had to write about it. It’s an interactive music video using a handful of web 2.0 tech that lends to a really impressive interactive experience. First and foremost you’ll have to check it out for yourself at www.justareflektor.com.
Second, after you’ve checked the video out, here is a list of the tech they used and a short explanation of what it does.
A web technology that allows browsers to communicate with each other, enabling near real time communication.
A web technology that lets developers analyze and manipulate audio files.
Your phone’s orientation is tracked using accelerometer and gyroscope data, which is passed to your computer via WebSockets.
Google Chrome’s advanced features, such as WebSockets, WebGL and getUserMedia(), help create an immersive, interactive experience.
App Engine lets web developers build and deploy instantly scalable web applications on Google’s infrastructure.
Compute Engine is used to run the project’s mesh network, keeping both phone and desktop browsers communicating at all times.
