Tokyo City Symphony's Incredible Time Killer

Tokyo City Symphony

In looking to impress the Olympic committee, this Tokyo City Symphony web application was developed, and the results are breathtaking. However, before going to the actual site, you should know that this will suck the rest of your day away: It's super addictive, be careful.

The Tokyo City Symphony is like nothing we've seen before. Using an incredible 1:1000 scale model of Tokyo created for the city's 2009 bid for the Olympic Games, the website allows you to project your own musical light show onto the cityscape and add it to a crowd-sourced symphony.
