“Dear Japan, you are awesome .. full stop”. As if Japan hasn’t got all the best things in the world, here’s an interesting addition to their arsenal of amazement, a spherical OLED screen globe. This globe was unveiled last year in the The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation and it is called Geo-Cosmos.
Standing at 19 feet in size, this pretty globe has little tiny square shaped OLED screens in fact there are 10,362 of them that are combined together forming a globe which also happens to shows a replica of the current state of Earth in real-time with a bit of delay. It is like Google Earth in real life and to top it off, it is interactive where the museum’s visitors have a touch screen display that is immediately reflected on the pretty globe.
This installment was built by Mitsubishi Electric and I recommend watching the video, definitely worth it.
