Magic Planet Upgrades and GeoDome Globes

In addition to our turnkey GeoDome Globes, we offer upgrades for existing Magic Planet® globe display systems. Our globes combine OmniFocus image quality with WorldViewer‘s content capabilities – so it’s easy to create new content and keep your globe programming fresh. Since 2012, we’ve delivered globe projection systems and complete solutions to dozens of satisfied clients. We work with globes from 60cm to 1.8m in diameter, with resolution up to 11.6 million pixels and brightness over 25,000 lumens.

Our most recent installation is the one at Mayo High School. Other happy clients include the Adventure Science Center, NASA JPL’s Earth Science Center, the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, Tellus Science Museum, and more. Here’s what some of them have to say:

I’m very happy with the support I’ve received from The Elumenati. With WorldViewer, I feel empowered to create my own compositions and stories for core curriculum. For the first time, I’m able to datasets to tell a story that the kids really understand. It’s a meaningful experience for them to learn about the Solar System through this exploration – not only seeing the visualizations, but the interacting with them. They spin the globe and even use the mic as though they were the presenters, which makes it very fun for them.  I’m also confident in my ability to keep the globe image aligned and looking good. I’m able to use the globe in a ways I couldn’t prior to working with The Elumenati.” — Angel Wilson, STEM Center Facilitator, Phenix City Schools

“Our new Elumenati projection system has made our 6′ Magic Planet come to life. The brightness and quality of the projected image make a major difference in the impact the globe makes on viewers. We are extremely happy and look forward to adding more content for our guests to explore.” —  Chuck Kopczak, Curator of Ecology, California Science Center

Our globe display systems are driven by WorldViewer, a powerful CMS – so globe clients can expand their Magic Planet programming with the following:

  • NOAA’s Science on a Sphere library of movies and datasets, including the EarthNow Climate Digest
  • NASA Earth Observations and Scientific Visualization Studio animations
  • 360° and panoramic images and video
  • Media created for head-mounted VR displays
  • Live streaming content from YouTube and Vimeo (both spherical and standard aspect ratio)
  • Web pages – supported via WorldViewer’s internal HTML engine
  • External applications – launching, navigation, and viewing supported by third-party Spout library

Our globes also support options for Eyes on the Earth and Eyes on the Solar System, offered through our collaboration with NASA JPL, as well as custom interactive content enabled for the globe with Omnity.
