This Week at HQ

We’re in the final sprint preparing a virtual reality exhibit for TED2014. It’s pretty amazing to fly through neuron branches, as the image above of Sebastian demonstrates. The demo will go online as a part of World Wide Telescope after TED.  We can’t wait to share it with you.

EyeWire overview was down over the weekend but it’s now back up! We continue the pause a of new feature deployment to focus on site stability and bug fixes.

Alex has been working on a gorgeous new series of EyeWire posters. More will go online soon!
