It tells you today’s weather before you start your day, how much traffic to expect before you leave for work, when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform, or your favorite team’s score while they’re playing. And the best part? All of this happens automatically. Cards appear throughout the day at the moment you need them.

Lichtreise: Highlighting Travel Itineraries with Long-Exposure Photos

Lichtreise by Advanced Media students Christopher Pietsch and Luis Grass is a visualization of a specific holiday itinerary. What makes this  work special, is how simple non-digital technology has been used to  generate the map: the basis is a long-time exposure picture, which was  lit with a physically moving batter-powered UV-LED light and a battery.

Timemaps

Due to the good public transportation in the Netherlands distance has become irrelevant. We can reach almost any destination by train easily and relatively quick. In our busy lives we now think in time rather than distance. Therefore the current maps, as we know them today, are obsolete. Thinking in time affects a map and hence the shape of the Netherlands also depending on the perspective from which we look. From the perspective of Eindhoven, for instance, the Netherlands is relatively small because of the quick and easy connections to other cities. At the same time, seen from a more remote and small village such as Stavoren the Netherlands is much bigger. Not only the location from which one looks, or travels, but the hour of the day is very important. At night the map will expand because there are no night trains and in the morning it will shrink once trains will commence their schedules. The map of the Netherlands will never be the same again.

First hypersonic passenger jet releases water instead of CO2

Blueprints for Zero Emission Hypersonic Transportation (ZEHST) were released in the Paris Air Show on June 20, 2011. This mechanical feat is to be virtually pollution-free and is able to carry about 100 passengers at a speed more than 3,125 mph i.e. almost four times the speed of sound. The jet will use three sets of engines to accomplish this speed. And most of all it will be powered by seaweeds or a composition of hydrogen and oxygen. The only emission this jet will release is water.

TripSQ creates an infographic of your Foursquare travels

One of my favorite parts of foursquare is the way third parties are  able to mash up the data from your personal checkin history to make  something that’s both beautiful and useful. TripSQ is the latest entry. Built on the Mapize platform, it essentially creates an infographic of your recent trips on foursquare.

US Passport Ownership Per Capita

One of the things I’ve often heard while living in the European Union is the meme that only 10% of Americans own a passport.  (This assertion  is usually followed by the quazi-urban legend that George W. Bush never  had a passport before becoming president.  This I’ve never been able to  prove or disprove any satisfaction)
