Visually Frivolous

There is so much creative (and sometimes perhaps frivolous) visualisation work being done at the moment – I really couldn’t resist posting this, the Uniqlock – turn the sound on for the full effect.

Another article which caught my eye on Digg was this comparison of some modern visualisation techniques. It reminded me of a simpler post I wrote two years ago along the same lines which shows just how far things have come in terms of the way people think about displaying information. How much of it is genuinely useful and not just eye candy is yet to be answered…
