Geo-Cosmos: Huge globe of OLEDs

    1. Interesting, thanks for the link.

      One thing that came to mind, which is an interesting usability problem (imo): When you zoom in further and further on such a touchscreen globe, what happens? The geometry should gradually approach a plane. What does the globe display, especially the regions which are close to the periphery of your vision. And what happens to the “back side” of the globe? What is displayed there?

      1. It is an interesting design challenge indeed.

        One possibility would be to use only a part of the globe for zooming in. The rest of the globe still displays the globe as before.

        Another one could be to only use the globe for getting an overview of what’s happening around the globe and then when you want to zoom in, use another screen nearby like a wall-screen or a tablet.
