The bar has been raised

One day, I'd like to see something like this at an Oracle event.

Sure, it might be a little difficult if it's live, but I'm sure the technology will get there. Perhaps we'll see more of this type of thing once our broadband network gets up to scratch.

On a side note, look out for circles that do wild things - Japan in the 40s (medium red dot), China in the 50s (big red dot), Rwanda in the 90s (little blue dot), Middle East in the late 90s (green dots)... sense a trend?

Apparently Hans Rosling has some good TED talks, I might have to look those up.

I agree it is definitely an attention drawing - interesting content plus interactive display. I think the technology is there but is not yet cost effective. This reminds me of the movie “Minority Report” even though the presenter here is not really controlling the drawing actions.
