Even though I am living in Japan, I have never made it to Nagasaki. But the Huis Ten Bosch theme park might make me go one day: Sharp has created a kind of 360-degree video room inside the park, which surrounds visitors in the front, above, below, and on both sides (“5D”) with a total of 156 AQUOS 60-inch LCD displays.

The park calls itself a “European residential style resort with luxurious hotels”, but I am sure some geeks with no interest in European architecture will be on their way tomorrow when the so-called “5D Miracle Tour” opens (sorry to say, I have no time). Sharp says there will be a front wall, ceiling and floor with 36 monitors each and left and right walls with 24 monitors each, providing an “immersive video experience” on 200 to 300 inches on all sides.

Visitors will be able to view the story of Sirena, the Mermaid (8 minutes).
