Hello. These are things I like.
Music video by audio/visual team Wolfshirt is a trippy 3D animation of information travelling in a virtual world.
The desaturated gifs above do not do the video justice - best watched in smooth colourful HD, video embedded below:
A visualization of a signal path through a computer.
Treat yourself to HD.
Made in Unity, Maya, VDMX, Ableton, Max/MSP and a final edit in Premiere.
Ring-like wearable device that can read aloud text as you guide it with your finger - video embedded below:
The FingerReader is a wearable device that assists in reading printed text. It is a tool both for visually impaired people that require help with accessing printed text, as well as an aid for language translation. Wearers scan a text line with their finger and receive an audio feedback of the words and a haptic feedback of the layout: start and end of line, new line, and other cues. The FingerReader algorithm knows to detect and give feedback when the user veers away from the baseline of the text, and helps them maintain a straight scanning motion within the line.

Some great typographic animation examples here that seem to capture the energy of the city:
SHOW US YOUR TYPE is a project about two things: type and cities. The project started to provide a creative platform for designers to share their talents and explore cities from a different perspective. These animations should show the impressions of Tokyo. The different artowkrs are mostly animated and have a interesting view on the capital of Japan.
