Wonderful time lapse videos of the sky. This site, a recent visit to the newly revamped Morrison Planetarium at the California Academy of Sciences and a moonlight snowshoe walk in Yosemite have perked up my interest in astronomy.

Classic Frontline video about a 3rd grade teacher’s in-class experiment in discrimination. Particularly poignant given the ugly race and religion based hatred that has been boiling up in our political process as of late. There were moments in the video where all I could do was hold my head in my hands. It was shocking seeing such ugly things emerge in young children over the course of only a few minutes. I’d like to think it was in part because of the prevailing culture of the time, but I fear things aren’t so different now.

Very cool video demonstrating a pen/tablet driven 3D model sketching program that incorporates some of the affordances of analog pen and paper drawing. Drawing, adding guides and changing views look really fluid to use. Love the sketchbook metaphor.

Nicely done short film profiling Paris’ bus rapid transit system Le Mobilien. They claim the BRT lane is also intended to be used by cyclists, but it seems inevitable that as a cyclist you would have a bus bearing down on you in short order.

Wonderfully odd wristwatch with tiny scrolling maps created in England in the 1920’s. Along with minimal route information (cross streets, landmarks) the scrolls also included mileage information.

A conceptually related follow up to Fry’s US zipcode map: “26 million individual road segments. No other features (such as outlines or geographic features) have been added to this image, however they emerge as roads avoid mountains, and sparse areas…”

Seeing the city in a new and creative way. Subway air vents as a street art opportunity. Something poetic about how the creatures come to life with the rhythm of the subway.

Very cool map detailing Armstrong and Aldrin’s landing on the moon! I like how it combines traces of the lunar geography with their paths and activities. The soccer field underlay communicates well the scale of the area. Nicely visualized.

As medical devices increasingly become a part of outpatient care, designers will need to consider how best to create devices that will be used in the home and operated by patients themselves.
