Recently, I’ve been experimenting with Cycles Render within Blender.
Cycles calculates lighting in a much more interesting way.
The data was found on NASA’s website. Link to dataset.
I randomly came across this interesting pattern playing around with blender. It’s essentially three glassy (RGB) cubes merging into the same location. Curious, I initially thought it to be some sort of 3d fractal caused by the reflective properties of the primatives within the scene.

In this series of frames, the perspective change is .01 degrees.
Exploring the realm of floating point rounding errors!
Perspective from a room in which the floor, walls, and ceiling are made out of perfect mirrors. What would all those reflections look like? The images and animations below were rendered using Blender.
Mirror depth, 5 and 10. Empty room only contains light source.

The Denver Police Department recently released an interesting crime dataset at http://data.denvergov.org/dataset/city-and-county-of-denver-crime. The data represents approximately a half a decade worth of police incident reports.
Below are some maps I created using CartoDB. Click on the images for higher resolution.
