At the Tokyo Science Museum Mitsubishi has installed an impressive globe built from 10,362 small OLED panels. The globe called Geo-Cosmos measures 6 meters in diameter and hangs 18 meters above the floor. The combined resolution is more than 10 million pixels.<br /><br /><h3>Geo-Cosmos OLED Globe</h3>Some time ago Mitsubishi exhibited a <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1265194637 target=_blank><b>gigantic OLED wall</b></a> made from small OLED panels. Now Mitsubishi is taken their efforts one step further with the creation of a gigantic OLED globe.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/geocosmos-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/geocosmos-1.jpg" alt="The Geo-Cosmos globe with 10,362 OLED panels" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>The Geo-Cosmos globe with 10,362 OLED panels</i></p><br />The globe is constructed from 10,362 OLED panels, each measuring 96x96 mm and each with a resolution of 32x32 pixels. Pixels are placed with 3 mm dot pitch meaning that you can see small lines between the OLED modules – but the globe is certainly very impressive. The combined resolution is more than 10 million pixels.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/geocosmos-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/geocosmos-2.jpg" alt="The Geo-Cosmos globe with 10,362 OLED panels" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>The Geo-Cosmos globe with 10,362 OLED panels</i></p><br />Mitsubishi produces small PMOLED panels (passive matrix OLED). PMOLED panels are great for animated or semi-static content. For movies or games AMOLED panels (active matrix OLED) are required. Samsung and LG are currently manufacturing AMOLED panels for handheld devices.<br /><br />See this video of the OLED globe.<br /><p align=center><object style="height: 520px; width: 317px"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/QwIvYwJXObc?version=3"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/QwIvYwJXObc?version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="520" height="317"></object></p><br />The globe measures 6 meters in diameter and has been installed at the Tokyo Science Museum. It went on display June 11, 2011 and will also be used to illustrate global weather systems.
