New Google Chrome Experiment Done in Collaboration With Cirque Du SoleilWritten by David Brbaklic / Featured in: Creative, Digital / 21.09.2012.
Not long ago, Google Chrome celebrated 4 years of rethinking web browsing, and although the browser hasn’t had any major overhauls lately, the guys from Google are making sure to keep the innovation going.
Google Chrome teamed up with Cirque du Soleil to make a “new sensory Chrome experiment” which transfers Cirque du Soleil’s wonderful live performances into a web platform using a special technology featured in the latest web browsers.
The platform is dubbed “Movi.Kanti.Revo”, three words in Esperanto literally translating as moving, singing and dreaming. The platform asks for your permission to use your camera and microphone, and when allowed, it guides you through a mystical world where you can navigate by only using gestures, without installing any additional software (for those of you who are more into the technical stuff, take a look at the Movi.Kanti.Revo case study).
This is just the latest project under the Chrome Experiments initiative, and although I only managed to get a glimpse of it, I can say it is probably one of the most ambitious ones, showing off great possibilities the modern web provides. Too see it yourself, visit the Movi.Kanti.Revo website.
