Today Google Arts & Culture opens the largest online exhibition about inventions and discoveries ever created, with 350 interactive exhibitions by 110 institutions from 23 countries around the world showcasing the history of human endeavour.
From a Big Bang augmented reality app developed by CERN and narrated by actor Tilda Swinton to a Google Street View look at the International Space Station, the Once Upon a Try project charts the history of discoveries and inventions in impressive detail. Meet the pioneering female palaeontologist who discovered the pterodactyl, discover how a freak accident led to the discovery of x-rays, and find out who invented the emoji.
The exhibitions come in a range of formats, from innovative augmented reality apps, to immersive 360 degree YouTube videos, Street View, high resolution interactive images, and much more.
The public is invited to explore “Once Upon a Try” on the Google Arts & Culture website or via the iOS or Android app. #OnceUponaTry.
