Floating Forecaster [MaxMSP, iPhone]

Floating Forecaster is a project by Richard Harvey which includes a physical display that reinterprets information via hovering patterns and flowing movements. The installation also allows users to create patterns and sequences using either an iPhone app interface (c74) or a custom made MaxMSP sequencing program. In the earlier examples, project started as a way to visualise weather, aggregating balls in the air to represent either clouds, rain or sunshine (see simulation here). I personally prefer it as is (see movie below), almost a 3D object drawing machine. Reminds a lot of this but absolutely wonderful nonetheless!
