Infographics are awesome, aren’t they? Buzzfeed did a census of Disney females, and the results are…well…see for yourself.
This presentation by UK car dealers Evans Halshaw takes us on a ride through the history of Bond cars. Classics include the open-top Sunbeam Alpine seen in Dr. No, the submersible Esprit Series 1 in The Spy Who Loved Me, and the comically unconventional Citroen 2CV. The quintessential Aston Martin makes no less than eight appearances, including a vintage silver-birch DB5 in the upcoming Bond film, Skyfall.
Have a look at some the wonderfully minimalist illustrations of the Bond vehicles after the jump.
Some of us spent an obscene amount of time on the Internet, so much so that we won’t come to bed because someone is wrong with the Internet.
An animated infographic from Bested Sites shows how the addiction has grown in the last 10 years from the sheer numbers of Internets users, to the time spent browsing, to what some sites looked like then and now.
See The Internet A Decade Later after the jump. If your Internet connection hasn’t improved in the last 10 years, it may take a while to load.
If you’ve ever watched Dr Mehmet Oz, you’ll know that he is quite serious about poop because it provides valuable information about the health of your digestive system.
The good doctor recommends examining not only your poop but the sound it make when it enters the water — it should hit the water as a diver from Acapulco would, with a swoosh. That sentiment that is echoed in this infographic, where the diver has been replaced with a torpedo. The infographic also provides information on the causes of the different colours and shapes of poop that you produce. And it details what your pee is telling you about your body. Be informed or sickened or both after the jump.

The famous physicist Albert Einstein once said, “I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.” Another scientist of sorts, Dr. Emmett Brown, told a pair of teenagers that the future is not written yet, and their is “whatever you make it”.
If you’ve ever wondered what the future would be like if we left it up to the movies, then you’re not alone. London-based designer Michael Hobson has created an infographic timeline that shows the pivotal events in our future, according to films. Unsurprisingly it is a bleak outlook where the sun starts to die off in 2057, we try to ruthlessly pillage unobtanium on Pandora in 2154, and all glory goes to the Hypnotoad in the year 3000. Have a look at Hobson’s lengthy infographic after the jump, but beware, some of Hobson’s plot summaries may contains spoilers.
Photographer Eric Fischer has a fascination for cartography. In this latest See something or say something series of maps, Fischer investigates the spread of Twitter and Flick across the globe. He makes uses of geotag information to show the locations where Flickr photos were taken, these are the red dots. The blue dots show the location of tweets and the white dots indicate that both Flickr photos and tweets were found at that location.

In this infographic created for an Australia TV show, writer Scott Mitchell and designer Patrick Clair explains the inner-workings of the Stuxnet, a virus that burrowed its way into large industrial systems in mid-2010.
Unlike the garden-variety viruses, Stuxnet was believed to have been coded by people who had in-depth knowledge of industrial processes and had a range of abilities, one of which allowed it to turn up the pressure inside nuclear reactors. The virus used zero-day exploit, so called because the vulnerability is unknown to software developer.
Have a look at Stuxnet: Anatomy of a Computer Virus below.
The number of people living on Earth is expected to exceed the seven billion mark in 2011. To commemorate that frightening fact, National Geographic Magazine created this little animated infographic that shows the increase of the world’s population during the ages, the current stats, and what staggering numbers we could see in the future. It’s very interesting, check out 7 Billion below.
