    Muse launched the Social Connectome, which is at connectome.muse.mu.

    What is it?

    It's a 3-D Google Chrome visualization of the Muse fanbase, created in homage to the Human Connectome project which inspired the artwork for the band's forthcoming new album The 2nd Law, due out on October 2 via Warner Bros. Records.

    The Social Connectome allows people to add themselves to a 3-D visual network of Muse fans, build their own branch of friends and unlock an exclusive track from The 2nd Law. As more and more fans join the network, incremental 30-second clips of the new track "The 2nd Law: Isolated System" will be revealed. Each branch is made up of unique recommendations, most of which will be made via Facebook and Twitter. The Connectome can be moved in 3-D space, zoomed in and will pulse to the music when the track is unlocked. This is next level web technology.
