For a unique way to display digital content, United Kingdom-based Pufferfish provides spherical systems that deliver interactive 360-degree videos, photos, motion graphics, text, and more for events or touring exhibits. Called “PufferSpheres,” the displays have a simple projector and a range of software tools that map content onto the sphere’s surface. The globes come in three sizes: The “PufferSphere M” is a standalone unit with a diameter as large as 36 inches; the “PufferSphere XL” can be anchored to the ground or hung from the ceiling, and is as large as 79 inches in diameter; and the “PufferSphere XXL,” designed for large shows, demanding light conditions, or permanent installations, is as large as 158 inches in diameter. Clients include Sony, Boeing, Audi, and Google; rental prices vary.
