Fidelity Labs Develops StockCity

Have examined a number of methods that use realistic spaces to represent abstract data. Never found these methods that useful beyond attracting curiosity.  Here another example by Fidelity. With the latest technology:

" ... Fidelity isn't the first company to launch an interactive virtual city app, but it's the first to create one in which the city is built entirely out of stocks. StockCity, developed by Fidelity's research and development think tank Fidelity Labs, is a data visualization app that recreates investors' portfolios as a 3-D city.

StockCity was developed for virtual reality headset Oculus Rift, and it's also compatible with the Google Chrome Web browser. In StockCity, each stock in a portfolio is a skyscraper, and the height of each tall building is determined by its closing stock price. Buildings are clustered together in neighborhoods that represent market sectors.  .... "
