This project illuminates the flow of invisible wifi networks. A wifi measuring rod lights up depending on the strength of wifi signals, and long-exposure photographs capture the light’s as the rod moves through space.

Grow Interactive worked with Google to concept and develop Uncover Your World, a lovely mobile experience for Google’s Search App.
To build the ad experience, Grow modeled an entire “world” with 3D technology and used a 3D printer to bring it to life. Check out the making-of video below:

You may think their time has passed, but what if QR Codes were less ugly and more useful?
Designer Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino set out to improve this troubled medium with Mapcodes, a hyper-linking system that uses fragments of maps — instead of indecipherable blocks — to link to full maps.
Although still in prototype/idea territory, it’s refreshing to see more user-friendly (and beautiful) graphic languages being developed for connecting digital content to physical locations.

Let’s face it… Kinect hacks continue to be cool. Here’s an elegant one for a music video for the singer BELL, which uses the motion senser and a projector to display elegant designs on her face.

Another Chrome experiment from Google, All Is Not Lost features the band OK Go and members of the dance troupe Pilobolus. Filmed from below a glass floor, bodies move and press against the glass (in seafoam green unitards, no less) to form kaleidoscopic shapes and your personalized inspirational message to Japan.
The online video was first shot in 3D and made possible by HTML5 — hence Google’s connection and endorsement of Chrome as the preferred browser. While it kind of feels like it could have been cooler, the video is reminiscent of the captivating, multi-window viewing experiences of the Wilderness Downtown and Soul-Mirror.
