Google’s Never Ending Bookcase

Google’s Never Ending Bookcase

The search giant rethinks online book shopping with its newest Chrome Experiment.

Nick Bakshi

WebGL Bookcase, the latest of Google’s Chrome Experiments, is a new way to browse for books online. The Google Books API interface creates a never-ending spiral bookshelf stocked with more than 10,000 titles. Pull a book from the shelf to read the synopsis, then chose to purchase it online via Google Books or to download it directly to your phone by scanning the QR code. For those unfamiliar with Chrome Experiments, they’re Google’s way of showcasing creative web platforms and content that push the limits of the Google Chrome browser. WebGL Bookcase was designed by the Google Data Arts Team in San Francisco, CA, using a combination of HTML, JavaScript, and WebGL.
