Last March I reviewed the initial release of Gyroscope. You provide access to services like Fitbit, Runkeeper, Instagram, and Foursquare and it aggregates and creates beautiful visualizations from your personal data. You can read my initial review here.
Over the last few months they’ve added new features, released an iPhone app, and continue to polish the interface. This week in addition to their normal weekly reports they’ve provided an annual report for users of their 2015 data. This report is done in a completely new style and provides information spanning travel, workouts, photos and more.
I’ve written several times in the past about Nicolas Felton and his amazing Feltron reports which are true data driven works of art. What Gyroscope has created now gives you a way to create a similar version for yourself. To see the beauty and detail provided take a look at the 2015 annual report for Gyroscope founder Anand Sharma here. If you already have a Gyroscope account you can view your annual report here. If you haven’t tried out the service yet, the start of a new year would be a good time to begin collecting data for your 2016 annual report. If that sounds appealing, go create your Gyroscope account.
