Ein Chrome-Experiment, inspiriert vom Disney-Film “Die fantastische Welt von Oz”. Mit neuesten Techniken und und Features durch den staubigen Kansas Zirkus und die pulsierende Welt von Oz wandern und an jeder Ecke neues entdecken.

“Find Your Way To Oz”’ desktop version uses many of the web’s more advanced features: Immersive Graphics: WebGL is the basis for the entire 3D environment. This was embellished by CSS3 features including CSS Transitions. The experiment also uses GLSL shaders to engulf users in an ominous-looking tornado. Rich Audio: As the user explores the experiment, the 3D sound dynamically adapts thanks to the Web Audio API. The same API powers the experiment’s music composing section. Camera- based interactions: Through WebRTC’s getUserMedia API, the user can become a circus character or record his/her own mini-movie. The experiment’s mobile web version is also built using open web technologies. These include CSS3 features such as accelerated 3D transforms and sprite sheets. “Find your way to Oz” also uses hardware features like camera, multi-touch, gyroscope and accelerometer to create an experience that can normally only be found in native apps.
