Visual Magnetic Fields – Magnetic Movie

Coolest video/cg I’ve seen this week. With a combination of science and 3d Animation, Scientists from NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratory made this nifty movie which brings to life complex magnetic fields. Take a look and read the back story.

Finally, make sure to turn the sound up. In addition to the trippy visuals, the crackle and pop of the animations is worth a listen, and consideration of minimalist sound design. (as is Cloverfield – a whole other blog post in the works…)
