Interactive Exploration of a Dynamical System

Meet the fusion of data visualization, interactive exploration and touch based interfaces.

Interactive Exploration of a Dynamical System from Bret Victor on Vimeo.

Hope you are as excited as I am. This is not just a pretty visualization but can be a sign of how touch-based app interfaces can enable interaction with various end-points of a system.

In this case it is seed states that initiate the system, coefficients that determine strength of each rule and how each rule interacts with the rest of the system.

But it can be so much more. Anything that can be represented as a model can have an interface like this to allow dynamic exploration. Imagine a model that represents the financial health of a country or a company, perhaps in real-time. Tweak various parameters and it reflects on the bottom-line, immediately.

What do you think?
