These already-cool photographs — captured at night with long-exposure film and a laptop playing an animation — become infinitely cooler once you know the haunting story behind them. (Conceived by GSP’s Croix Gagnon)

The sound-reactive Konstruct app uses an AR marker to produce virtual 3D sculptures with your iPhone.
It seems reminiscent of this project from 2003, a very cool piece visualizing sound in a playful way in the live performance context:

Burberry celebrated the opening of its new store in Bejing with serious style. They held a fashion and technology extravaganza at the Bejing Television Center last Wednesday, with an impressive turnout of celebrities, top models, and a performance from Brit rockers Keane. The fashion show combined real models and life-size 3D holographic models who paraded down the catwalk sporting the new line. As the show progressed they walked through each other, multiplied down the runway, and burst into snowflakes. The impressive event finally finished with a shower of snowflakes on the entire crowd. This is an excellent example of how to integrate innovative technology into an event that anyone can enjoy and appreciate, regardless of language, age, or gender.

This data visualization of civilian casualties in Afghanistan shows what web browsers can render without the use of plugins. In the words of the Developer and Designer, George Michael Brower:
That this visualization can be viewed in-browser is a testament to the promise of modern web technologies such as WebGL, HTML5 and CSS3, all of which were leveraged in this piece. As browsers adopt support for these standards, developers and their audience will enjoy fewer barriers to rich experiences, hopefully increasing the visibility and appreciation of code as art. Thanks to Ricardo Cabello for three.js as well as Chris Lauritzen and Jono Brandel.
