Daylife's Universe: Eye Candy or Brain Food?

Daylife is a new news oriented web site that came onto the scene a little while back to a lot of fanfare. I've used it on and off and it's ok. It's certainly a lot prettier to look at than things like Google News. Daylife's emphasis on design and the use of photography both are quite striking and make the site worthwhile.

Today they are introducing another wonderful bit, via Daylife Labs (does everyone have to have a 'labs' now?) It's called Daylife Universe.

What is it? I can't quite explain it. It's a super mega visualization of all the news that is happening or is happening in a series of displays (they call them stages.) It's one of those things that you have to see, and even then, you have to play with.

There's no question that it's a very interesting and novel product of graphic design, animation and creativity. Check it out.
