For the 75th anniversary of the mainframe computer IBM wanted to make an interactive experience for PR use on the web and at press events and trade shows. I was contracted to create and build a prototype for an app that would let a user surf through both the “scale” of the mainframe, playing off the “Powers of Ten” video by Charles and Ray Eames. The app needed to work in a stand alone and guided environment. The prototype was built using React.js and a variety of JavaScript based animation tools, with individual animation elements created in After Effects.
