What if you could hold data in your hands? Imagine bumping into data.
The image below represents my Twitter activity in 2012. The more spiky a cube, the more I tweeted. With these 3D printed cubes I can actually feel the difference in the data. These objects are also incredibly tactile. Is there a way we can utilise this idea within a VR environment? We can at least make these spiky cubes. Is there a way to allow datasets to made into stl files that can the be physically printed to allow for further discussion or be the catalyst for debate outside of the VR environment?
