Curiosity: What's Inside The Cube Time-Lapse Video Released

Vimeo user Hal Bertram has created a fascinating time-lapse video that shows the gradual destruction of the second cube layer in Peter Molyneux's Curiosity: What's Inside the Cube experiment. The video squeezes 36 hours of furious tapping and sketchwork into just under 50 seconds. You can watch it in full below:

Here's what Hal himself had to say about the video:

"I was curious about Curiosity. I tapped some cubes. Then I was curious about what the other thousands of users were doing," he wrote on the site.

"This is a quick (obviously unofficial) visualisation of the destruction of one of the faces of the cube in #Curiosity from @pmolyneux and @22Cans. Each cube lights up and then fades as it is destroyed.

"I time-lapsed a face of the cube over the 36 hours it took to go from full to clear. Some of the details will not be in the precise order they were tapped, the time resolution isn't great but I wanted to ensure the load on the servers was negligible. Only one of the faces is shown for the same reason. Hopefully 22Cans have got the actual timestamp of every cube's destruction.

"However, it still gives a view into how all the chaos and individual details develop into the familiar pattern of an expanding centre meeting the more slowly expanding corners."
