Histography is an amazing interactive timeline of every single historical event that’s there is information for on Wikipedia. So that is pretty much everything from the big bang up until today.
Each dot on the timeline represents an event. You can also use the scrollbar at the bottom tho move through timeframes like the Stone Age or the Renaissance.
If only specific events from a particular period interest you it’s possible to filter by category.
Histography is a final year project by Matan Stauber at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem.
Histography currently only works on Chrome and Safari.

Once you’ve got your base video (or videos) in Popcorn Maker, adding elements to it is as simple as grabbing one of the “events” from the right hand side of the editor and dragging it onto either the video stage itself, or the timeline below. Once your event is in the timeline you can change the settings, resize it, move it around and otherwise tweak it to behave the way you’d like. And finally just click the share link and Popcorn Maker will give you either a link (or an embed code) you can paste anywhere on the web.
To get started remixing videos, head on over to the Popcorn Maker site. If you want to see some examples, check out new Popcorn Maker projects on Webmaker.org. For more background on how Popcorn Maker works, check out the Mozilla Hacks blog post.
