Basic Information

Overview

Kazemill collects tweets on the six most common cold symptoms, and then displays the information back to the public on the website. Each symptom is represented using a different colored ball that moves in a unique way. Kazemill has made the cold visible, so people can easily see a realistic snapshot of the cold virus across Japan.
