This new thing in Vegas.

How was this thing made?

I seen the videos on social media, it can be anything it wants, the inside and the outside are like a sphere shaped video screen.

The videos of its outside that I have seen, one minute is a giant Halloween Jack-O-Lantern, the next minute at night when it's closed, it's a giant sleeping emoji.

The videos of the inside shows it can be anything, the audience can feel like they are on a beach or in a canyon or in one video I have seen, you feel like you are standing in the middle of a landscape surrounded by missile silos launching nuclear missiles.

Also one of the videos said the entire 2/3 of the 17,000+ seats is 3D and 4D HD experience, better than IMAX, without needing to wear any goggles.

This Sphere is gigantic, can you imagine living within miles of it and having to see it lit up in the horizon whenever you step out of your front door.

Here's math used to built it, it might as well be speaking Klingon to me because I don't understand any of it

There are plans to built one in London and Dubai too.

From the videos that I have seen it is very impressive.
Imagine how it would be as a planetarium or any "being there" (e.g. flying as an eagle/Thunderbird/Blue Angels) experience.
