This is a really nicely presented new interactive content piece from the British Museum. (Maybe not the first company that would imagine would be investing in interactive content, but maybe that’s why its so good!)
What’s it about?
It is reminiscent of some of the Guardian’s earlier interactive pieces, in the fact that it offers a similar racetrack, timeline approach but is unique enough to hold its own in the crowded interactive content world. The interactive’s main focus point is a timeline, which also handily doubles up as a musical instrument: Mousing over any of the different coloured blobs makes a sound similar to one of those wind up toys.
