IE9 video: The Killers built a new website with HTML5 toys

SAN FRANCISCO — The rock band The Killers showed off a new website built by using the next generation of Web design technology.

Demonstrating it at Microsoft’s browser event Wednesday, the site features a 360-degree panorama of a desert scene, with graphic links to photos, music, videos and a timeline map of the band’s touring history. The map site alone looks like a business-intelligence data visualization.

The site can be seen at www.thekillersmusic.com, but you will need an HTML5 capable browser to get the full effect, such as the latest Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 beta.

Sparkart, which is based in Oakland, built the site for The Killers. Here is a video of Sparkart’s Chief Executive Officer Naveen Jain showing the site. (No relation to the Intelius CEO Naveen Jain.)
