Posted by twindragon on Jun. 22, 2009

Some video of the iPhone App Store hyperwall from WWDC 2009 at a few rare moments when it wasnt being mobbed. This was a fascinating display and held the attention of everyone the entire time. The legend posted read- What youre looking at- Over 3,000 apps—and growing—are downloaded every minute from the App Store. This is a live feed showing the activity of 20,000 popular apps currently on the store. Every time a customer downloads an app, its icon lights up (5-min delay). How we made it- This hyperwall was built using the latest in Apple technology. Its powered by 20 Mac Pro towers running Mac OS X Snow Leopard. It was programmed in Quartz Composer using new OpenCL APIs. And its shown on 20 synchronized 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Displays.
