Basement dwellers of the world unite (in a basement)!

The Science Museum London, in conjunction with Google, is hosting Chrome Web Lab: a live, collaborative music/data/art experiment. You can participate in person at the museum, and online of course [optimized for Chrome].

Every visitor to the exhibition, online and in the museum, is represented by a “Lab Tag”: a visual code that can be scanned at each experiment to let users keep track of their activity [Tellart].

Running out of Science Museum London's basement until July 20th, 2013, Chrome Web Lab features five immersive experiments (created by Google):

Universal Orchestra - Make music with people around the world.

Teleporter - Travel instantly to far away places. See how the web can give you the experience of being somewhere else.

Sketchbots - Watch your portrait being processed and drawn by a robot.

Data Tracer - Trace routes across the Internet's vast network and see where images live.

Lab Tag Explorer - Explore Web Lab's global community and browse visitor's creations.

Wonderful. I love the Science Museum--it's so vast. You can spend hours on just one floor. I must stop by next time I'm in London.
