I must confess that I didn't find it all that impressive. I understand that some small video cannot do it justice, but even taking that into consideration, I don't see how it would help to understand the data. There would need to be a lot of work done on to allow for customization as well as an easy way of grouping and filtering. But I guess I will just have to wait and see.

I'm not sure if it was created as a serious network monitoring tool rather than a cool looking visualization method but I guess the sound does help I think, when you hear an explosion somewhere in your network, even when you're not paying attention, something MUST be amiss ;) ... then you could see where the smoke is coming from. Surely there's more efficient serious tools out there, but c'mon, they don't have an interface that looks like it was taken right out of the movie 'hackers' :D
