“Hans Rosling’s famous lectures combine enormous quantities of public data with a sport’s commentator’s style to reveal the story of the world’s past, present and future development. Now he explores stats in a way he has never done before – using augmented reality animation.”
A bit overwhelming but really clearly explained.

“Watch arriving passengers be given a welcome home to remember at Heathrow Terminal 5.”
There have recently been a batch of “flash-mob” spontaneous musical events in several major cities. It’s cool to see, marketing stance or not.
