Data Tracer

Data Tracer

Chrome Web Lab is a set of five experiments that can be tested both in the real world as a live experiment in the Science Museum and in the online world via Chrome.

In Data Tracer, you search for an image using keywords and you’re shown a series of pictures and asked to click on one or more. Web Lab then visually shows you where that image is located in the real world and how long it took to find and retrieve it online. This experiment is designed to demonstrate how data travels across the Web. It does so at a scarily fast rate that is easy to take for granted.
