Spherical View of Berlin

WEST BERLINERS going about their daily chores are pictured in the cartoon film projected on a novel, spherical globe in the City's Pavilion at the Fair. Another short film takes up technological productivity; maps with special lighting effects portray the Berlin of the future.
Left: this translucent sphere carries a cartoon film about life in West Berlin. It has an approximate four-ft. diameter. Above: our own sketch shows how images are reflected upwards through Plexiglas tube from 35mm (German-made) repeater projector down below floor. A Zeiss lens; 45-degree mirror are used.
