There are several large displays scattered around my office, each mounted near the ceiling with an attached computer. The idea is for people to put up cool stuff that will be visible to the whole office. Any suggestions?
The Uniqlo Calendar
was popular, and I've also tried Newsmap
with a browser extension to auto-refresh. Other ideas include WeatherSpark
, Twitter feeds, food truck maps, interesting clocks, photostreams, screensavers..
I gravitate toward data visualizations, but anything visually interesting would be fine. We're a bunch of youngish tech-oriented people who also enjoy cat videos as much as the next.. bunch of youngish tech-oriented people. Shouldn't be distracting or controversial, since it is a workplace, and text should be legible from a distance.
Would be nice if it's low maintenance - not always crashing or requiring user input. We're willing to get our hands dirty to set something up, though, and also capable of creating software if there's a cool idea but no existing implementation.
