Giant OLED Globe

    TokyoTek has uploaded this video of the very awesome OLED globe that is now on display at Tokyo’s Miraikan museum:

    The “Geo-Cosmos” is made from over ten thousand Mitsubishi OLED panels:

    Hanging 18 meters from the floor, the globe is an aluminum sphere covered with 10,362 OLED panels, each measuring 96 x 96 millimeters. Mitsubishi Electric used its scalable OLED technologies to create the globe, which replaces a globe comprising light emitting diodes (LEDs) to commemorate the museum’s 10th anniversary. The globe will display scenes of clouds and other visions of the earth taken from a meteorological satellite. Projections will feature resolution of more than 10 million pixels, about 10 times greater than that of the LED display.
