Sharp unleashes 5D attraction to Japanese thrill seekers

Sharp has revealed details of an incredible looking theme park attraction that is dubbing "The 5D Miracle Tour".

The incredible setup, which will be installed at the Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan, comprises 156 60-inch LCD TVs (model PN-V601) set out below your feet, above your head and on three walls.

"Because of the small system frame width between neighbouring monitors, visitors are surrounded by huge, seamless displays from 200 to 300-plus inches wide in front, above, below, and on both sides," reads the official press gumph.

"An image transmission system controls all of the LCD monitors to give visitors a whole new visual experience of images that are bright, detailed, and life-like."

It all sounds brilliant, but we're not sure where 5D comes from though - the displays aren't 3D and there's no 4D action courtesy of smellovision or naff smoke machines.

It opens on 29 April. It's the perfect excuse to visit the Dutch-themed theme park. Yep, Huis Ten Bosch is a replica Dutch town complete with canals and windmills and real size copies of famous Dutch buildings.

Only in Japan, eh?
