360 Degrees of Separation

October 31st Tokyo Japan

Mitsubishi Electric has created a new panoramic display system consisting of a 2-meter tall, 7.5-meter diameter screen surrounding the user in a nearly 360 degree virtual display (340-degrees to be exact, with a 20-degree gap for entry and exit). The 17 separate 67-inch panels has a 27 million pixel resolution and was built specifically for an undisclosed client. Mitsubishi plans on selling the system as a virtual reality display for public use in the coming year.
