WikiGalaxy, by French engineering student Owen Cornec, is an interactive visualization of Wikipedia entries as a galaxy of stars, that transforms the online encyclopedia into a digital space map of articles.

Relevant articles are grouped together into clusters of stars, creating a constellation of human knowledge and turning 100.000 entries from the free encyclopedia into a digital nebula of human knowledge.

Users can explore with the galaxy map or fly through the stars in first person view, searching and readind articles in fullscreen, or scan through their links. A fascinating vehicle for travelling across the universe of information above us.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
