Animated globe made from 10000 OLED screens

The Japanese have trumped everyone again with this amazing yet crazy invention. Using over 10000 OLED screens they constructed an enormous globe that rotates across them. It is currently in The Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo. It is given a continuous stream of satellite images that update the image of the globe in real time. Measuring about 6 meters across, it hangs from the ceiling and has walkways around it. There are special touch-screen computers surrounding it that enable visitors to view information about global environmental events. Check out the video below!
