What are the best ways to stream data at runtime into Babylon to be visualized?
I have a Node.js TCP connection that is constantly receiving data packets. Each packet corresponds to data to display in different X Y Z locations. Imagine if there was 100 or 1000 or 10,000 of these information packets updating every second.
Use a TextBlock object floating in space for each data packet. Update each blocks text as data comes into that location. I’m guessing this wouldn’t be feasible for 10,000 TextBlocks updating every second.
Best solution I can think of:
Create a textured plane with all possible text on it. Duplicate this object as an instance 10,000 times. Then use 10,000 instances of cubes to display data next to it, sizing them to create analog data or covering the texture to block out or highlight different options.
If you were pushing dynamic data visualization to its limits, how would you do something like this?
