Hi Sisu, thanks for your comment!
Looks amazing indeed. Cool would be to have geo-data mapped onto the globe (e.g. gross domestic product per person), and then zoom into the globe for detail-information per region.

Would be a really good education tool for kids if it was programmable. I imagine that country-studies could be pretty interactive on something like that.

Such a globe could also display other planets and their moons. Globes of most of the mapped bodies of the solar system are not currently available at any price.

Hi Martin

Great idea! Explore the milky way with the touchscreen-globe...
