As you can imagine the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo is already chock-full of some of the most outrageous technology available. The latest addition however, a 10,000 OLED screen packing 'digital globe' puts most of the other exhibits to shame.

Known as the "Geo-Cosmos", the rotating globe provides 3D images of earth produced using meteorological satellite images. 

The globe has been built to replace the museums older LED iteration built to commemorate its tenth anniversary. The OLED displays allow for ultra high resolution projections to be shown on the sphere which has more than 10 million pixels.

It hangs 18 metres from the floor in the museum and carries the title of "the world's first large-scale spherical OLED screen"

Hunter Skipworth

The baby of the Lint team, Hunter has been a tech fan since he bought his first MiniDisc..and what a waste of money that was. He began writing about electronics at the age of 16 and hasn't stopped since. Nowadays he fulfils his mobile phone and gaming obsession whilst attempting to distract people from his bizarre name. Regular meetings with the Gladiators crew see Hunter often returning to work battered and bruised. Considers himself a music obsessive, was once the most highly decorated scout in the country. Fan of trousers.
