    Budget Climb is a physically interactive data environment where we can explore 26 years of federal spending - giving us a unique perspective on how our government spends our money. In order to explore the data we must exert physical effort, revealing how the budget is distributed in a novel and tangible way. Using our arms and the Microsoft Kinect, we can climb to the tops of our data cubes and look out onto the budget metropolis in the distance. Created by: Frankie Cheung, Zach Schwartz, and Fred Truman.
