I have seen a few POV globes before, but this one is the best yet! Looks like GNG Display had some time on their hands and decided to have some fun.

“See the world in 3D and write your message on the world.It’s a POV display. It has 256 white smd led for drawing the world and 32 blue smd led for the message section.”

    Actually I believe that was a different globe which can be found here:

    You’ll notice the ‘other’ globe I linked to uses RGB LEDs (I am not sure if they are RGB LEDs or three LEDs of each color per pixel, but the effect is the same) which allows the globe to be full color on every line. You will notice in this the magazine because they feature green land and blue oceans, this globe doesn’t have the green option. The full globe was also featured in Make Magazine if we want to compare the publicity the two have gotten. RGB globe, 2; this globe, 0.

    I’m the owner of the gngdisplay. We are trying to solve some problems of this globe to make a commercial item.I think it will be ready at first months of 2008. We don’t put any information in our website. It wil be full color RGB may be. But this will increase it’s cost. Lastly sorry to my poor english.

    Sweet looking! Will it be only available complete, or as a DIY kit?

  9. Roe Says:

    Nice, the LEDs he use look really small, SMD? I hope he opens source it.
