Time is a topic that many types of museums touch on.
The Web-based app called Life Stats was developed by creative coder Neal Agarwal to graphically show things that have happened since the day you were born.
Life Stats ranges from very personal things (How many breaths have you taken? What's the total amount of time you have been asleep?) to very universal and global things (How many times have you orbited the Sun? How much has the world literacy rate increased?)
This approach could be a fun addition to exhibitions or programming centered around the human body or topics related to space and time.
