The Wilderness Downtown – Interactive Music Video

September 1, 2010

You may remember a few years back, Arcade Fire’s interactive music video for Neon Bible. The one where a singing head and two hands move around and do different stuff when you click on them. Anyway, they’re back at it, this time using html 5 and Google Street View to wow you with their talent.

There’s something quite cool about the mucky resolution google pics sitting with polished sections of video & 3D, and it’s another step in the right direction for the progression of html5.

See what you think:

I just stumbled upon this the other day. A great way to collaborate all sorts of old photos and stories from various locations across the globe using the google maps api. Some of the photos also mach up to the street view images which is cool. I do hope it takes off as the value of this relies heavily on content (sadly only two pics of the Isle of Wight).

Enjoy:
