Museum in Tokyo to Unveil World's Largest OLED Globe


Recently Mitsubishi Electric Corporation stated that it managed to mount a huge OLED globe that can be observed at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation located in Tokyo.

It would be interesting to note that the globe is 6 meters in diameter and represents the world's first large-scale spherical organic light emitting diode display. Suspended 18 meters above the floor, the globe has an aluminum frame on which 10,362 OLED panels were mounted. Each panel measures 96 x 96 millimeters.

The official presentation of the display will take place on June 11th, being a part of the museum's new exhibit entitled "Geo-Cosmos".

After the official launch visitors will be able to see the screen displaying scenes of clouds, as well as other visions of our planet taken from a meteorological satellite. Images takes by satellites will be shown at a resolution of over 10 million pixels.

It is worth mentioning that the globe was installed with the goal of commemorating the 10th anniversary of the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, reports Inhabitat.
