Experimental Gameplay Workshop: Earth Primer

As part of the Experimental Gameplay Workshop for GDC 2015, Chaim Gingold presents Earth Primer, an app that's a 'science book for playful people.' As the description of the experience from the ex-Spore programmer explains: "Visit volcanoes, glaciers, sand dunes. Play with them, look inside, and see how they work. The forces of nature are at your fingertips."

The most accurate map of Earth

Japanese architect Hajime Narukawa claims to have tackled a centuries-old problem - how to draw an oblate spheroid Earth on a flat plane.
He claims the above map, called the AuthaGraph World Map, achieves this task.
The projection, first created in 1999, frames the world's physical components in a 2D rectangle, attempting to represent their relative sizes as accurately as possible.
It does so by dividing the world into 96 triangles, making it a tetrahedron, then unfolding it to become a rectangle.
