YouTube Time Machine Takes You Through History Via YouTube

YouTube Time Machine arranges thousands of YouTube videos on a categorised timeline for easy browsing of history highlights in genres like current events, sports, movies, music and more.

The interface of YouTube Time Machine (YTTM) is simple. Scroll on the timeline to select a date between 1860 and the present. YTTM grabs a random video or recording from that year and displays it. You can click the “Watch Next Video” button to see more videos from that year or filter your results by genre, currently Video Games, Television, Commercials, Current Events, Sports, Movies, and Music. We found the gem below while checking out 1977.

A mere 50 pounds? We’ll take two. Have a favourite tool for getting more out of YouTube or a clever timeline application of any sort to share? Let’s hear about it in the comments.
