Share messages by holding a smartphone up to the night sky.

Written In The Stars by AKQA is a mobile messaging site that lets people share holiday greetings in the sky.

The receiver of the message can view the sender’s greetings by holding their device up to the sky. The messages come with an original soundtrack by 3D from British musical group Massive Attack.

The site is tailored for iOS devices and created by combining several HTML 5 APIs — web audio, canvas, and device orientation. The orientation of the user’s device directly affects the audio and visual components of the whole experience.
