Interesting Find on the Web: Tori’s Eye

Tori’s eye is a Twitter visualization tool, inspired by paper craft and origami.  This was a project done by the parent company Quodis which is a website and web application developer in Portugal.  It’s a visual and technical experiment implemented using only standard XHTML/CSS and JavaScript.
In a nutshell, this is a twitter search.  You enter something in the search box and the flying origami birds will carry a tweet based on your search criteria.  When you catch a bird with your mouse pointer, you can read a recent tweet. 
I really like it because they incorporated origami and makes these searches more fun.  I did a search on my twitter name and all the birds carried my most recent tweet!
