Interactive Inspiration [46]

A mindblowing and fun mix of interactive visualizations to explore

July 26, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

As we mentioned yesterday, this has been a week filled with major news and events, and unfortunately not all as happy and inspiring as the birth of the new heir to the British crown or the Pope’s visit to Brazil.

Among the projects that caught our attention, we’d like to mention the latest book review by no other than Bill Gates. With an array of multimedia features, Gates talks about Harvesting the Biosphere: What We Have Taken From Nature, a book by scientist and professor Vaclav Smil.

Here are the Interactive visualizations of the week:
