flow/control collaborated with variable studio to create visualisation showing all Android device users, for the openening I/O keynote delivered by Sundar Pichai on 2015 Google I/O. The visualisation was seen by 6000 attendees, and over 1.8M viewers online, making this the hugest flow/control projects to date.
We started by exploring the dataset, using variable in-house pex library, writing a lot of small exploratory apps to test the ideas and see what we are dealing with. We were also researching ways of rendering on such a huge display, in order to keep artifcats away.
We created a lot of custom tools for this project, most important ones being a timeline which helped us to time things properly and multiple views into the final screen, so we could test if element sizes and speeds are working.
