Social network visualizations

Overlapper
“Two important drawbacks of graph visualization are complexity and cluttering. In Overlapper, complexity is reduced by selecting only interesting subsets so only relevant information is displayed. Also, the authors used two edge models: the complete model, which join together all nodes of each film, and the radial model, which connects each person node to a central node representing the movie, reducing edge complexity. To avoid cluttering, edges are not drawn. Instead, transparent hulls group people who have been involved in the same movie.”

Contributing to panoramas

EveryScape Takes Streetview Indoors
“Paid photographic contributors take the panoramic photos, “scapes”, that serve as the canvasses for embedded information contributed by users. Contributors range from “graffiti” artists who embed new information to paid professional photographers that take panoramas. There’s also a mid-range for paid amateurs, which lets anyone with a simple digital camera and an IPIX camera kit to take photos that EveryScape can convert into 3D panoramas.”

Lighting clothing

Clothing: Battery Powered Yarn Illuminates Clothing, Mostly Breasts
“This electroluminescent yarn, or “EL yarn,” is technically a multi-layer electroluminescent film composite material made from yarn and dipped in a special light-emitting ink on the inside, with a insulated covering and a second layer of yarn on the outside. When electricity runs through the yarn and ink, an electric field is created that illuminates any point where the outer and inner layers of yarn touch.”

Voice displays

“Evoke” by Usman Haque [York]
“People with voices of different frequencies, rhythms or cadences will be able to evoke quite different magical patterns upon the surface of the building – a staccato chirping will result in a completely different set of visual effects to a long howl for example, blending old and new to continue animating the facade of the Minster.””

Projector arrays

Military Sim Almost Brings Halo 3 To Reality: Military VR Simulator Is Closest Thing Ever to Real-Life Halo 3
“Although there are other multiple-projectors solutions in the market, the cool thing about Mersive’s Sol Server technology is the automatic calibration to adjust the multiple projectors to the curved surface. Instead of using complicated procedures that can take weeks to complete, Sol uses a robotic camera to obtain reference points. After the screen is mapped in less than an hour, the Sol Server software corrects for “geometric distortion, intensity and color variation in overlap regions that result from using multiple overlapping projectors on the spherical surface of the dome.””

Dynamic dashboards

Tokyo Auto Show: Space Age LCD Dashboard Converts Your Car into a Batmobile
“The Nippon Seiki Co.’s Wide Vision is a GT-Rish LCD car dashboard kit that not only shows and logs the usual information on speed, rpm and mechanical conditions, but combines it with a nightvision view of the road, rear view camera and some wicked animations to make you feel you are actually flying a Viper Mark VII instead of driving your Honda Civic.”

3D displays

Monolake Atlantic Wave Balloons
“Most interesting though, is Monolake’s recent Atom performances – where balloons are arranged in a grid and connected to tubes that allow them to be filled with certain amounts of helium. The balloons also have LED lights inside, which can vary the brightness of the balloon. The end result is a computer controlled three dimensional display that can shuffle between arrangements in time with the soundscapes being triggered.”
