2012 Olympics showpiece unveiled in London
An extensive team of engineers, designers, and architects from around the world unveiled plans on Monday to create a digitally connected structure to grace the 2012 Olympics in London.
The structure, called the Cloud, is both a physical and digital cloud designed to broadcast real-time data and images on spherical, three-dimensional screens. While the images would float high above the city, the sound would be broadcast at ground level.
The Cloud will power itself, using a combination of solar energy from photovoltaic panels installed both on- and off-site.
