Video: Google traces an email’s trajectory in “The Story of Send”

Google’s never been one to shy away from cute, whimsical stories —  see this Rube Goldberg ad for Chrome as an example — and its latest creation is called “The Story of Send.” The interactive web page, created in HTML5, traces the trajectory of an email from your Gmail account through their back-end routers all the way to your recipient.

It’s an interesting and fun look at something we do every day but may know very little about.

Check it out as part of Google Green, a new web page dedicated to showing off the company’s ecologically-sound endeavours. Video below.
