Data as Art

Data as Art

There is something both arresting and appealing about this visualisation

Calming, and slow enough to understand the information

With thanks to Jeff Cambron who writes:

A new project with GE, the science of dynamic breaking (a key to GE's in-development hybrid diesel-electric trains) gets broken down via super slow motion video capture

Basically it is a simple illustration of the physics behind braking. The General Electric Company, have discovered that we can capture and store energy from a braking locomotive = dynamic braking

I don't know much about the product, nor the science, but the video is jolly impressive
