How Many Really?


London-based multi-disciplinary studio Berg has designed a prototype data visualisation tool for the BBC, to explore how digital media could be used to relate stories and facts from history and current affairs.

How Many Really compares the numbers of people who experienced an event with a number you can relate to – the size of your social network. Users simply sign in with their Twitter or Facebook accounts to compare them with statistics ranging from the global number of internet users, to how many code crackers worked at Bletchley Park in England during World War Two, ushering in the computer age.

If the prototype is successful, it will be incorporated into the British broadcaster’s history and news websites. See more of Berg’s collaborative work in AR Entertainment.
