Tower of Power : A Mock Up of the Projection

‘The results of the general election are to be projected on to St Stephen’s Tower, which houses Big Ben, for the first time, by the BBC. The number of seats won by the three largest Westminster parties will be updated over the course of the night. The images, illustrating the state of the parties, will be beamed from the moment the first result is declared until about 0530 BST the next morning. The BBC said it was “delighted” with the initiative.

The Parliament has joined the BBC in this endeavour to project the election results onto the most famous tower of the House. This is the first time such projection is organized in Britain.

A small step for data…
