An endless black hole in the internet, Wikipedia’s new universe Wikiverse really is a cosmic formation.
A new browsing style is developed by the company, Wikiverse is built by the French designer Owen Cornec. The site is a web-based interactive 3D map of Wikipedia. It’s visual imagery is like a cosmic universe and a bunch of information is gathered together in a galaxy-like system. You can explore inside the sphere, -it rotates actually- and find information through the system.
Let’s take a look at this informative video,
Actually Wikiverse is an upgraded version of an old Google Chrome experiment called WikiGalaxy. It was designed by Cornec in 2014 so, he probably developed his big idea in these 2 years.
Each star is connected to related entries from the website and is gathered in a galaxy zone; you either zoom and explore a star cluster, or rotate and explore another.
Right now, 5% of Wikipedia’s content is loaded into the new platform, so the website also tells us how many stars -they mean, topics- will be in their galaxy.
The concept of a universe of knowledge is inspiring and Wikiverse uses it in style. What do you think? Comment below!
