Real-Time 3D Air Traffic Network Simulation Installation

InformationAesthetics brings us news of a Real-Time 3D Airtraffic Network Simulation.  A 14-meter, 180-degree field-of view presents the real-time status of 16,000 Lufthansa and Star Alliance flights with an interactive 6-DOF interface and spatial sounds.

The navigation interface provides 6 degrees of freedom, while time and content filters can be activated with buttons and sliders. The user can swiftly move from a macro view of a local hub to a global overview of the worldwide air traffic routes. All flight patterns are linked to spatial sounds that follow the visual representations through virtual space.

Very impressive indeed.  See video of the installation after the break.
