FIFA’s artistic director, Andreas Heller, designed a huge globe which has been on show in Berlin. Dirk went along to take the pictures on this page and to play with the interactive exhibits held inside…

Dirk says:

“it’s a sort of multimedia show wich covers the German history of World Cup, the host cities, stadiums, as well as a little bit fan culture… The best thing has been a virtual penalty game. You could kick an virtual ball towards a projected goal which was protected by an animated goalkeeper (an animal, a chicken, I suppose). Quite amusing watching the chicken doin’ some artistic stuff for a few seconds before he finally catches the ball or misses it.”

UPDATE: Seems like Google Maps caught the Globe on camera when it was in Dortmund. Have a look!
