Brief:  Come up with lots of consumer-relevant and consumer-friendly applications to launch Google’s new video conferencing platform,  “Hangouts”.

Solve:  We came up with an application for Hangouts that also lets you travel back in time.

Google wanted ideas that stretched beyond the video conferencing functionality normally associated with the platform. So we came up with a number of them, and landed on this one.

The following demo showcases an idea called “Time Machine Hangout”. Part time machine, part homework tool, part immersive experience, this
hangout gives kids the ability to travel back in time to join any conversation in history.

‘The Guy Fawkes Gunpowder Plot Hangout’ Demo:
In this demo, we choose to invite an 11-year old boy in 1605 to participate in a conversation with Guy Fawkes and his gang about their plan to blow up the House of Lords.

The demo travelled to Google HQ. It was loved.
Time Machine was developed in collaboration with Google Creative Lab Sydney, and supported in the U.S. by Google Creative Lab NY.
