Released on January 12, 2010. Gaia Labs is a page that holds experimental projects created by Developers on Gaia Online. It is open for preview, testing, and feedback from Gaia users.


Welcome to Gaia Labs!

Occasionally, late into the night and over the weekends, our developers work on stuff on the side. This page allows you to see some of our experimental code and give feedback to the developers working on the feature. The features aren’t official, might or might not ever be part of the main site, and will probably have some bugs — nonetheless, everything here is something that was created by a developer because he or she thought it would be cool for the users. Please try them out and let us know what you think!

Be sure to check back every so often, because we’ll be updating this page as we get new experiments.
