GlobeTweeter

Visualize real-time tweets around the world

Client Mozilla
What we did
  • Original Concept
  • Site Design
  • GUI Development

For the launch of Mozilla Firefox 4, we collaborated with Cedric Pinson to create an innovative and fun way to look at worldwide tweets in real-time. Our role was to work on the concept and visual design of this WebGL demo. We envisionned an interactive 3D earth featuring tweets from all over the world, connected to the live Twitter streaming API.

One of our goals was to keep the UI simple enough so that it could run both on desktop and touch-enabled devices.
