Globe 4D is a unique globe that combines physical and digital technologies to produce a physically manipulatable globe that can display any part of the earth over time. It is a sphere that can be rotated in any direction by hand onto which images are projected. As well, by moving a ring that circles the globe, users can control the time line being displayed. It is a model that seems ideally suited to museums. The globe can also be used to display other spherical objects as well. Check out one of the videos for a demonstration. Globe 4D is a project by Dutch multimedia students from Leiden University.
