I remember seeing this as it launched last week and was itching to post it, I held back a few days, because I wanted to showcase it as a video so everyone could get the full visual experience (it only works in Chrome browser, so naturally, the demo was built by Google!).

This is by far, the most powerful HTML 5 demonstration I’ve seen yet, and it’s pretty easy to see why when you look at the serious javascript at work here… The HTML 5 demo has multiple choreographed windows triggered by music points, interactive bird flocking to your mouse and in time with the music , custom rendered Google maps , perfect real-time compositing over the top of maps, some advanced procedural drawing that delivers velocity influenced tree branches from the mouse and even 3D canvas rendering! So, enough of the nerd stuff, this is bloody amazing, check it out, you’ll be glad you did.

Note to everyone. Only 17% of you who read Digital Buzz have chrome, I’m hoping that number will increase to 30% in the coming month! Get Chrome, you know you want to.
Make sure you check out the official experiment page here.
