City Sounds and Flying Hamsters

Created during the @5apps_ HTML5 hackathon Saturday 5th – Sunday 6th May 2012.

PUT ON YOUR HEADPHONES!

Generate a soundscape of the area you're looking at on the map then fly around it.

How to run the demo

First of all clone the Git repository:

git clone git://github.com/mmarcon/htm5Hackathon.git

The demo requires Node.js and Express. We implemented a little HTTP server that serves the application and at as a proxy to Deezer as the MP3s hosted in their CDN are not served with the cross-origin flag.

If Express is not already installed:

npm install express

Then

cd node
node proxy.js

Now just point your browser to http://localhost:8000, plug in your headphones and enjoy. The hamster can be controlled with arrow keys, space generates a soundscape for the current area.
