here at hyperbrand were geeky, so you dont have to be! Which does mean that when we come accross things that excite us we will share them with you, but only in the hope that it will make your day a little pinch better. The moment I saw this last night I new that this would be on the blog first thing this morning. Google have been slow recently with innovation, apart from rumors of a google glasses product and some very innovative viral videos they havent really been advertising how they pushing the corners of the web as we know it. 

Or at least until this project was released - the chrome experiment they has nailed it, working in conjunction with the london science museum they have developed five interactive projects, where internauts interact with a series of physical projects that are set up in the science museum. This is definitely worth a play if you have yet to take a look and it looks like here at hyperbrand we are going to start brushing up on our HTML5. 

Welcome to the future!
