Info - animation of a modern data center's renewable power sources.
Published:
Check out the original animation here: http://thinkhypothetical.com/datacenter.php.
 
To demonstrate the idea of making a moving infographic, I made this looping animation showing all the different ways a modern data center gets its power.  Wind turbines, geothermal, hydroelectric and solar generation all make an appearance.  
 
Maybe methane too if you count the cows.
 
To reduce the effect of the looping and also keep the amount of data transfered at a minimum, the truck, falling bits and person inside the geothermal plant are overlaid as separate passes.  Those elements are then free to loop on a different schedule and make the whole effect less repetitive.
