David Durlach's Technofrolics makes a spin-browser that allows
to examine video with a high degree of interactivity. This works
great for watching and learning how birds fly, how water splashes,
and especially how people act in a group social dynamic situation.
The linked video, although
it may out me as a scheming and
nefarious troll type personality, is a great example of Durlach's
system showing social dynamics in action. The video is of a group
school kids on a playground and as you watch the video, and then
back it up and go over certain parts you can see the group interact
and all the personality of the kids come out. If you watch the
thing you will see the group split off into the smart kids, the
kids and the slow kids, you will see the king and queen if the
playground play out their romance and you will see challengers
usurpers, as well as in-fighting and allegiances. It is full of great
social dynamic information as every interaction is, especially if
watch it on the spin browser.
So the proposal is for a room with a video cam that takes a
of a social interaction between a group of people, and then allows
them to spin-browse the video of their own social interaction.
I think this would be very educational.
