Unexpected telemetry uses
We are surrounded by devices that collect information. Without interpretation, those data are not much different from chaos. It's the stories we tell with them or the metaphores we design that give them meaning and create leverage.
Tom Scott converts distance to money
Had you not heard about Tom Scott until now? His channel is a must if you are into science, coding, tech or interesting trivia. Many of his videos merge form and content in a unique meaningful way, and this one is no exception. He uses GPS data to measure distance and then maps it to the size of one dollar notes. This simple one-dimensional approach gives us a new perspective into the immense difference between a million and a billion.

Fun fact: the GoPro accelerometer maxes out at 8 g. They got really close to that. Would you dare?
