Killing Me

There is a lot of talk about 3D at the moment. And most of it still relies on the old red/blue or polarised lens technology. This site is no different, except for the fact that it is an exemplary use of old-school 3D on the web, and absolutely smashes the other offerings out there at the moment.

The video is the first of its kind, a 3D video using no cameras, written entirely in code, with much of the content fed by fans via a Twitter feed. The video is a unique experience with every view as it re-generates with each loading of the URL. The first portion of the video features visualization of Robyn’s lyrics in 3D. The remainder of the video is created by users themselves who tweet in what is killing them using the Twitter hash tag, #killingme. These tweets are themselves visualized and credited to the user. The video has the potential to become the infinite video as users can continue to add on to the endless stream of #killingme comments.

Turn up your speakers, grab your red/blue sunnies and sit right in front of your monitor. (unless you suffer from epilepsy, in which case ignore all of the above).
