Coffee!! I’ve been drinking like three cups per day for the last week or so. I wonder how much I’d have to drink to bump us up to the next category hehe.
This graph highlights bitcoin as being worth more than the UK’s pound. Interesting! Still not totally sure I understand how bitcoin works and it baffles me that it’s still such a big thing. (From r/dataisbeautiful)
From flowingdata.com. I thought this was interesting in terms of subject matter, and the bright colours caught my eye! I wish I could choose fun colours for my project but that just seems inappropriate…
So what you’re telling me is… drink more coffee 😀
This is pretty informative. I like that it scales the population to a relatable number to make it easier to understand. Although it seems like percentages might achieve the same result?
This diagram came from a paper I’m reading called Reality-Based Interaction. The idea is that interfaces always contain some compromise between the “reality” items on the left, and the extra non-reality items on the right. However, this diagram just seems… Continue Reading →
This is a painting hanging up in my friend’s house. I’m just thinking about colours when I look at this. I really like the contrast between the purple and the green.
Interesting! I would have expected these to get progressively darker with difficulty, but it seems like there are quite a lot of dark squares in the medium difficulty. Taken from r/dataisbeautiful
According to this, Norway is great at Winter Olympics! I’m curious about the categories they’re including though; I suspect it’s really biasing the visualization.
Usually companies colour code these things. It makes it so easy to know what’s what without having to read the packaging. Why isn’t this brand doing that?! (I think it was Kotex maybe?) Infuriating.
This was in a paper by Jagoda that we read for Lora’s class. While there are a variety of colours, some are fairly similar, and particularly where the bars are short, it’s difficult to read at times.
My great-oma made this for me when I was born. It doesn’t exactly encode any data, but it’s interesting to think how needlepoint could be used for that. Something I might want to explore in the future!
In case anyone was wondering how chinook winds happen, this is it! And hopefully we get a lot of this this winter. I’m surprised at the altitude required for it. I would have expected it to be higher.
Truly depressing. Can I just live on another planet please? Source given at bottom of image.
This is a visualization of happiness across the states. It’s interesting that the west is happier. I wonder why that is. (Also from r/dataisbeautiful).
Some visual instructions on how to handle adulthood. The cutesy style of the drawings is very fitting to the message.
Here is a visualization of Lights’s new album and comic series. It shows how the songs on the album correspond to the issues of the comic. I love the album, maybe I’ll have to check out the comics!
I’m sure glad that most clothing tags also include written instructions for washing and drying. I was never taught the language of laundry!
Another version of a word tree. I like this circular layout a lot more than the horizontal one I shared previously. (Stanford University)
I’d love for my tablet to give me a little more information. It’s been “100% complete” for the last 15 minutes so what am I missing here?
I think my car might be trying to tell me something… You’d think a bright yellow light would get its message across, but it’s three years later and here we are. It’s just become part of the scenery.
Pi art! Also on the subject of colours, I’m a fan of this bright colours on a dark background approach. I think it’s eye-catching and fun! (Artist: Martin Krzywinski)
Looking for information on how text has been incorporated into AR environments in general. Most of what I’ve found has been information overlay onto the user’s surroundings. This is probably not useful in my project, but interesting nonetheless! Source: realvision.ae
This is more of what I think a word tree should be. I’d like to do something a little more visually interesting for my project though… (looks like Dr Seuss!)
Duolingo telling me about the loss of my 84 day streak. I liked it better when that flame was orange! Although the grey effectively tells me I screwed up.
A very accurate visualization of my childhood learning… Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill! (Taken from a post someone shared on Facebook)
My frequently used emojis as a visualization of the emotions I express over text message. I wonder how this will change as the stress of the school year inevitably grows.
