From TED – This was created with a noble purpose in mind, and I’d encourage everybody to learn more about it. This, also, is a fascinating piece of technology. The Orb turns a handful of LED lights into a display of our home, Planet Earth.

Nick and James Sears have taken up Fuller’s geo scope challenge, and built a way to contextualize the world’s data.

The Orb

This is truly fantastic.

  1. Wow, another awesome site by a hard working blogger that absolutely no one reads. It’s depressing, really, as if someone set up a pretzel stand in Chernobyl.
