Data Physicalization

A video featuring examples of data physicalizations.

Physical representations of data have existed for thousands of years. Now, with advances in digital fabrication, actuated tangible interfaces, and shape-changing displays, a new area of research is emerging: data physicalization.

Data physicalization aims to help people explore, understand, and communicate data using computer-supported physical data representations. These representations are called physicalizations, analogously to visualizations – their purely visual counterpart. This wiki provides reading material and a forum for all interested in this topic.
