Cellular Visions: The Inner Life of a Cell, an eight-minute animation created in NewTek LightWave 3D and Adobe After Effects for Harvard biology students.
 
The animation shows a number of molecular machines — ribosomes, motors, and more — working to move molecules and structures around a cell, and even to create the structures. It also shows a lot of membrane events, and molecules working with and through membranes, and a few organelles. It shows the molecules in their real molecular structure — these are renderings of experimental data, not artists’ conceptions.

Nanotechnology


Nanotechnology – Age of Convergence. Visualizes how nanotechnology will be used to repair and upgrade our bodies. Charles Ostman was the “Nanotech Visionary” behind this.
 
Nanotechnology Takes Off, created by PBS.
 

Nokia Morph Concept. Morph is a concept demonstrating some of the possibilities nanotechnologies might enable in future communication devices. Morph can sense its environment, is energy harvesting, and self cleaning. Morph is a flexible two-piece device that can adapt its shape to different use modes. Nanotechnology enables us to have adaptive materials yet rigid forms on demand.
 
It is also featured in the MoMA online exhibition “Design and the Elastic Mind”. It has been a collaboration project of the Nokia Research Center and Cambridge Nanoscience Center.

Transparency and Privacy


An old Star Trek episode comes to life with the Panoptic Systems C-Thru 3D Video Surveillance System, a way for Big Brother to get a “god’s-eye view” of everything going on inside a building or plane. Taking input from numerous 360-degree cameras placed throughout any location, the system combines all those images into one “auto-stereoscopic” display.
