From Twitter blog:

The new record more than doubles the previous one of 3,283 TPS, set during Japan’s victory over Denmark in last summer’s World Cup. In fact, on New Year’s Eve, that all-time TPS record was shattered more than 68 separate times within a single 3-minute period.

The video above visualizes New Year’s Eve Tweet data across the world. The circles get bigger as more Tweets are being sent at that moment, which means it’s probably midnight in that timezone. Notice that the circle over Tokyo gets so big it nearly swallows Japan.

Cool video!

Simply Top Notch!

This is my senior project at Savannah College of Art and Design. Where my idea comes from is that every time when I am busy, I feel that I am not fighting with my works, I am fighting with those post-it notes and deadline. I manipulating the post-it notes to do pixel-like stop motion and there are some interactions between real actor and post-its.

Here’s the making of video:

This is brillant:

SixthSense‘ is a wearable gestural interface that augments the physical world around us with digital information and lets us use natural hand gestures to interact with that information.

The SixthSense prototype is comprised of a pocket projector, a mirror and a camera. The hardware components are coupled in a pendant like mobile wearable device.

This project is built by Pranav Mistry from MIT Media Lab and was recently demoed at TED.

And, below how Sixth Sense works:

The prototype cost around $350 to build and probably can be much cheaper if it goes mass production.

I’ll take one.
