A Chrome Experiment Made with Some Friends from Oz (@DisneyOzMovie)

You wont need magical powers to take a journey down the Yellow Brick Road; just point your favorite browser to the latest Chrome Experiment, Find Your Way to Oz. Developed in collaboration with Disney andUNIT9in anticipation of the upcoming film,Oz The Great and Powerful, this experiment takes you through a dusty Kansas circus and leads to a vibrant land, following in the footsteps of the Wizard himself.

Like any good circus, theres plenty to keep you entertained: compose your ownmusic, play with a funphoto boothand create your own movie with azoetrope. The path to Oz also involves confronting anominous tornado; surviving it completes the journey, enabling fans of the movie to watch an exclusive unreleased clip from the film.

Chrome Experimentslike Find Your Way to Oz would have been impossible a few years ago. Since that time, the web has evolved and allowed developers and designers to create immersive beautiful experiences. For Find Your Way to Oz the 3D environment was built entirely with new technologies such asWebGLandCSS3. Its enhanced by rich audio effects thanks to theWeb Audio Application Programming Interface (API). The photo booth and zoetrope were built using thegetUserMediafeature ofWebRTC, which grants webpages access to your computers camera and microphone (with your permission).

For the best experience, youll need to use an up-to-date computer built to handle intense graphics. It also works best with a webcam and a modern browser that supports WebGL and WebRTC, likeChrome. The experience also works best on For tablet or smartphone users, we have a smaller scale yet equally enjoyable experience that you can try with the latest Chrome browser on your Android device, iPhone or iPad.
