In this video Professor Shinichi Takemura demonstrates his Tangible Earth Project. Seemingly from a sci-fi movie, Professor Takemura shows us a few of the incredible capabilities of his real-time information globe.
His goal with this amazing device is for us to completely understand the rareness and preciousness of our planet. Our consciousness is confined to our local areas; therefore, we never really see the impact we have on our planet. We are lacking something in our real global information system and that’s what he wants to change.
