Housing Prices, 1890-Present, Rendered As Virtual Roller Coaster

Brilliant. A full view of the coaster track from at or around ground level to give a sense of perspective on the 3D model and experience would have been nice. Otherwise, wonderful work.

Part of its brilliance is in its literal adaptation of a cliche. Beyond markets, how could such an experience be relevant to visualizing data? Has anyone seen simple game-making software in the service of visualization?
