๐ŸŽฎ Bringing live data to life with Digital Art & Unity

โ” About

As you already know now, we have & share live data through :

We wanted to create an immersive and Jaw Dropping experience with this live content :

"We wanted to bring our data into life and jump inside it so we could finally be surrounded by our own data"

๐Ÿ‘‰ We chose to use Unity Game platform for that.๐Ÿ‘ˆ

๐ŸŽค The pitch

"We are using Unity as a platform to visualize our data in a new dimension."

๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ The artworks

๐ŸŽฑ Create and bring a scene to life

The underlying concept is quite straight forward :

  1. Each agency is a billiard ball
  2. We get all our agencies and drop them on a circular pool table (it creates more interactions)
  3. Each ball continuously updates its own size (then increasing its mass) according to the real data by polling the API

Enjoy the show :

๐ŸŽฎ Deliver as a video game

Finally we did package the whole experience as a Video game so we can take a walk withing the artwork :

๐Ÿงช Experimentations

We also started to develop some other kinds of experiences :

๐Ÿ’ญ To be done

Export as an Augmented Reality experience so we can enjoy the show in our world, for example

"Display the show on a real table at the office, or put collaborators in their own immersive experience."

๐Ÿค“ Source code

The code is open sourced so anyone can push experimentations further :
