Tube map purists may want to look away now, because web developer Peter Trotman has given the original design a major overhaul, and we're seriously into it. He's completely binned off the familiar layout from Harry Beck's original 1932 tube map, instead making it an interactive travel time map (not time travel – it's not that advanced), which moves around as you use it.
Here's how it works – you click a station from the sidebar and that station moves into the centre of the map, giving you a better visualisation of how far everything is from that station, as well as specific journey time information, which is displayed both on the map and on the sidebar next to each station. Plus, it looks like a kind of dot-to-dot version of the tube map, which is strangely aesthetically pleasing.
We think it's pretty damn cool, but don't take our word for it – have a go with the map yourself:
