In today’s world, technology runs us, drives us and we depend on it for many of the nuances, functions, and actions that we take. Technology moves fast and information overload is real. So, it only makes sense to use data visualization to keep our fingers on the pulse of what’s happening in the technology world. Here are the Top 10 Data Visualizations in technology:
Designed by Martin Grandjean, this is a series of data visualizations presented in a force-directed map of the 3,275 global airports and all connecting flights; representing 37,153 total routes. Each bubble represents an individual airport and the bubble sizes represents the number of flight routes. The data is based on OpenFlights.org and this visualization offers the ability to map the connections between all airports around the world.
This image shows real-time information about how quickly data is generated by the internet giants. The data visualization can be used as a baseline for a number of statistics and projects. It updates the viewer on the duration of time on the site and the amount of GB data that has been transferred over the net.
DDos attacks are occurring every nanosecond of every day around the globe. This data visualization map shows the attack origins and the end result. The DDoS attack is an attempt to make an online service unavailable by launching large quantities of traffic from multiple sources. This type of attack overwhelms the servers and can take many websites down.
The HoloLens glasses are the latest launch from Microsoft. Using Microsoft’s Windows 10, the user wears the holographic technology glasses and the digital images that are overlayed to bring the images into the real world. This ability is available for both stand-alone images as well as video gaming and conferencing and allows the user to interact with the digital objects.
Say goodbye to clunky ‘whiteboards’ in the workplace. This technology is a huge multi-touch display that makes use of digital ink technology. It is available in 55-inch as well as 84-inch screens and supports a custom Skype video conferencing software and OneNote as well as Microsoft Office software. You need to use special ‘pens’ for the surface display and it includes pens and keyboards.
This visualization shows eye tracking technology that enables the user to control a variety of devices including tablets and play flight simulators. Using foveated rendering, this new type of headset provides intuitive control as it combines gestures and voice control. The product is a new solution for the integration of eye tracking with VR headsets.
The next generation for GPS moves beyond the standard map displays and voice instructions and instead connects to your smartphone to project a virtual image of your route directly onto the windshield of your car. The information is located in the line of sight of the driver so that you are no longer required to shift your view from the road and instead, can remain focused with your eyes firmly centered on the highway.
Transitioning our smartphones into the eventual security controllers that we need is addressed with the ability to lock and unlock, so you don’t need those keys. The Sesame software lets you use their five-patented design that works with a variety of standard and weird single cylinder deadbolts that are used around the world.
The wizardry of creating 3D computer-generated imagery over real world objects now blends the virtual with the present. There is now an ability to take images and transition them into stories, tales, and true ‘art’. The goal of this company is to allow the user to create ‘magic’ through the use of their own imagination and fuse it with the every day.
Taking the concept of wearables to the next level of anticipation and delves into the security of everything. This wearable syncs with the unique biorhythm of the user as the security protocol and then works with a number of the devices that we use every day. From logging into a laptop or smartphone all the way to locking or unlocking car or home doors, this is the next generation of wearables that even allows payment and purchasing options.
