The AlloSphere: Step inside your visual data!

Awesome sphere that you step into and become completely immersed in visual data!  I can't wait for one of these to be available for the public to experience.  Great TEDTalks video.

JoAnn Kuchera-Morin demos the AlloSphere, a new way to see, hear and interpret scientific data. Dive into the brain, feel electron spin, hear the music of the elements ... and detect previously unseen patterns that could lead to new discoveries.

The History of Beer infographic


The History of Beer was published on Manolith.com.  I like the twist on a timeline infographic.  First, it's vertical instead of horizontal.  Then, it's actually four timelines in one highlighting different events in Science, Religion, Literature and Facts using the four colored tracks.

Design and layout by 600 Series Design, illustrations by Dan Zettwoch.

Check out some of the original sketches and story on Dan's blog.

Circles: Visualisation Volume 2

From Chris Watson (visualthinkmap.ning.com), comes Volume 2 of the online magazine "Visualisation" featuring many different infographics from around the world.  They all use circles as the focus of their images, and Chris has done a fantastic job putting these together.  Included are some interviews with the infographic authors and high-res version of the images.

Great work Chris!

Microsoft's Vision 2019

Apparently by 2019, we will all live in an infographic world, and that's good news for us.  Microsoft had the first public showing of the video at the Wharton Business Technology Conference.  Some found Microsoft's video inspiring, and some were not impressed.

I love some of the ideas shown in the video, but much of it also felt like the magic of Hollywood.  Because this blog is focused on infographics, I understand how much thought and effort from the designer goes into making just one infographic image useful and easy to understand.
