General information

Thanks to digital technology, a COLUMBUS globe becomes a solo entertainer. The EXPLORER PEN adds helpful detailed knowledge to the information on the globe and on our maps and atlases. Area, population growth, names of the capital and much more are visually stored in the globe in six categories and can be accessed by using the speaker in the pen. In addition, it offers cultural insights into country-specific features from national anthems to vacation regions in video portraits - by connecting to the smartphone or tablet of your choice. It has never been so easy to travel to distant countries from the comfort of your sofa. Moments of wanderlust made in the COLUMBUS factory in Krauchenwies.
