The following is a presentation from SIGGRAH 2011, a conference on computer animation and visualization. This is a demo and has some technical jargon but I think you’ll find the images interesting.
Following yesterday’s video, we have another production this time exploring what Chell might have done after the original ending of Portal. Excellent production values and special effects.
This one is a short one. Promise.
Another great example of what books might transform into in the near future. An amalgamation of media that is as addictive to browse as Wikipedia and tv tropes. For more ideas see my prior posts about eBooks.
Amazing dedication to some amazing data. Kudos should definitely be given for the visualizations which handle an impressive amount of data cleanly. Having so much data on a person is both really interesting and really scary. I like the concept of privacy but I’d love to have that kind of interpreted data on that I, and only who I’d want to share it with, have access to.

Beautiful animation. Beautiful music video. It is stuff like this that made me want to be an artist and animator as a child. It is still stuff like this that makes me want to be an artist now.
Ryan Woodward, according to the “making of” video found here, has worked on several feature animated films, and the Kori Wakamatsu was the choreographer for the dance who did an obviously beautiful job portraying a story through human movement.
I’m not much for dance but when viewed, distilled, through an animated medium, I definitely have come to appreciate it more.
Excuse me I need to go watch it again.
Professor Hans Rosling teaches world health, and with the help of some awesome visualizations, shows human progress over the last century as plotted by life expectancy and wealth.
