A DRONE HIDDEN INSIDE WORLD’S FIRST FLYING
SPHERICAL DISPLAY TECH INFORMATION
New kind of display tech has been created by NTT Docomo comprised of Light Emitting Diodes organized on a sphere and hovered with a help of a whirr. The sphere switches horizontally thus fashioning a delusion of a parade to the spectator. Docomo is all expected to bring the tech to the market by March 2019.
A lot of things are heard from the people who are talking about the curved screens and potential holographic displays in the making of first flying spherical display. NTT Docomo comes straight out a Sci-Fi movie by the latest tech. It is a 3.4 Kg device with a display resolution of 136 pixels wide and 144 pixels high along the perimeter.
You would have to believe that this crazy stuff is even beyond those movies. Special Spherical Drone Display comprises of an internal LED frame arranged horizontally and housed in an external metal frame. Drone sits at the center of the sphere that can be remotely controlled to take the display anywhere.
In the Docomo blog post it is written there: “During the flight, the LED frame spins on its axis in a rapid horizontal motion, forming an afterimage effect to create the illusion of a solid sphere of motionless LEDs”. One problem was faced by the Docomo during the development of the Flying spherical display the display was messing with the drone’s airflow. That is the most probable reason they went for the hollow one that lessens the complete weightiness of the device.
However, the Docomo has plans to present their spherical drone display at the NTT Ultra Future Museum 2017 during the Niconico Chokaigi conference, starting April 29.
