Google Web Lab

On Sunday, I went to the Science Museum, because they had a weekend on the science of zombies, but I actually became more interested with the google web lab exhibition. When you go in there is a disclaimer;

When you get in you get given a card with a unique combination of shapes which you use to interact with the exhibitions. This is mine and my brothers.

The first 'experiment' was writing and playing a tune on these large instrument type things. Mine didn't save properly.

The second was to look into a viewer to look at a live camera streaming from a location in another country controled by you. You could also take photos. My favourite was watching the people at Amelia's 24 hour Bakery.

The third was to have your picture drawn by a robot. My picture wasn't the best, but I don't think it was ever going to be. I filmed the robot drawing my picture, as you can see in this video, but the one that Google made was better.

I didn't really understand the fourth experiment...

I quite enjoyed the experiment and it's pretty good that you can look at your results at home online. The queues weren't too bad, but it was 5pm on a Sunday, I can imagine they are worse at other times. If you're in South Kensingston, I recommend a look. You can also have a go online.
