Wayback Time Machine

The Wayback Time Machine provides a way to visually explore the evolution of a website. It is inspired by Apple's 3d visual language in iOS and Mac OS.

It is powered by the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. See the Wayback Machine CDX API.

Created with Jono Brandel at the 2017 Internet Archive Experiments Hackathon. See source code on Github.

A microservice built with NodeJS and Chromium headless generates the screenshots from the Wayback Machine. They are rendered in a 3d axis with ThreeJS.
