The Internet Explorer folks have teamed up with Fox Studios to create an interactive “training center” tied to the upcoming film “Prometheus.”
“Prometheus,” which hits theaters June 8, is set in the “Alien” universe and is directed by “Alien” director Ridley Scott. It centers on the crew of the spaceship Prometheus and clues to to humankind’s beginnings.
The Internet Explorer team has created what it calls the Project Prometheus Training Center, “giving fans the chance to demonstrate they are capable of being a crew member on the Prometheus ship,” according to the official Exploring IE blog.
The training center, designed entirely in HTML5, includes physical and cognitive assessment tests and the site will feature the tests’ top performers each day.
The site can be accessed using any modern browser, though IE (of course) recommends IE 9.
You can access the site here.
A promo for “Prometheus,” by the way, featuring actor Michael Fassbender as the robot David, is one of the most wonderfully creepy trailers I’ve seen this year. Have a look:
