Google Web Lab: Magic of the Internet


Google WebLab

Web Lab: The Magic of the Internet, Brought to Life

Launching in beta, Web Lab is a set of five physical installations housed in the Science Museum in London. You can interact with them in person at the museum, or from anywhere in the world at By opening up the museum experience to the world online, Web Lab doesn’t play by the usual rules - a visitor’s location and museum opening hours no longer matter.

Each of the five experiments - Universal Orchestra, Data Tracer, Sketchbots, Teleporter and Lab Tag Explorer - showcases a modern web technology found in Chrome to explore a particular theme in computer science. For example, the Universal Orchestra experiment uses WebSockets to demonstrate real time collaboration as people from around the world make music together on custom-built robotic instruments housed in the Science Museum.

Please join us online or at the Science Museum in London (entry is free), and let us know what you think. True to its name, the year-long exhibition is a working lab, and we’ll continue to tinker with it based on your feedback.
