Kewl app alert: The Wilderness Downtown

I heard about this on a podcast recently, (possibly CBC Spark) and I just had to check it out. And you know what? It's uber kewl!

There's a Chrome Experiment (which makes me wonder if this works on other browsers - not that I care, since I use Chrome ;) in which developers have created the means for you to put your neighbourhood into a music video. It's done by mashing up canned images and clips, with images from the Interwebs.

According to the site: "The Wilderness Downtown" is an interactive interpretation of Arcade Fire's song "We Used To Wait" and was built entirely with the latest open web technologies, including HTML5 video, audio, and canvas.

Did I mention it's really kewl?

Give it a try. Go to Chrome Experiments - Arcade Fire and plug in your address. Then watch the magic unfold. (or Make it even kewler by plugging in the address of your childhood home.) Enjoy!
