The Pendulum for the Expo 2010 in Shanghai – by Milla&Partner

December 2nd, 2009 // 1 Comment // Posted by Philipp

2 weeks ago my university was invited to see the pre-presentation of the energysphere. It is a sphere  which is going to be installed at the german-pavillon fpr the expo 2010 in shanghai. The Event-Agency Milla&Partner created this amazing element. With hundred of thousands of LED´s it creates different visuals on its surface. In Shanghai it will interact with the participants. For example if the people are screaming – the sphere will be following the voices. It was very impressive to see this. Its still having some problems with the interaction, but i am sure it will be impressive at shanghai.

It weighs 1200kg and has a diameter of 3m.

GoodMorning: Visualizing Wake Up Tweets around the World

August 27th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

A interesting Project by Jer Thorp. Twitter as a worldwide phenomenon..kind of impressive. Are you on Twitter yet?

GoodMorning [] is a Twitter visualization tool that shows about 11,000 “good morning” tweets over a 24 hour period, between August 20th and 21st. And this is just a simple sample of Twitter activity around the globe. All tweets are color-coded: green blocks are early tweets, orange ones are around 9am, and red tweets are later in the morning. Black blocks are ‘out of time’ tweets which said “good morning” (or a non-english equivalent) at a strange time in the day.”
