Apple's - Hyperwall
At the World Wide Development Conference which was held in June Apple showcased 20,000 of the most popular iPhone apps on a massive hyper wall built out of cinema displays, one that pulses in sync with every App Store download, all icons are sorted by colour and importantly are not just for show, although there being a couple minuets delay the live mural has each iPhone app’s icon pulse light outwards in a ripple whenever someone downloaded one of the apps. While certain apps pulse more than the others due to popularity, the effect produced an animated digital landscape. A great way for apple to show the popularity of the iPhone and its apps I think they should use the idea in apple stores for everyone to see.
