Wikigalaxy: Wikipedia in 3D

Oh what fun it is to read Wikipedia this way… French engineering student and computer science master’s candidate Owen Cornec has created Wikigalaxy, a Chrome experiment that transforms the crowd-created encyclopedia into an interactive space map of articles.

According to Cornec, “The articles are mapped depending on how closely related they are, you can see related articles near by or hop around by browsing through links.” Related articles become clusters of stars, hyperlinks become interstellar pathways, and Wikipedia users and bots can be seen soaring through the simulated space like comets.

Check out Wikigalaxy here and watch a video about it below.
