Fish Eye Lens for Maps

The technology is from Alps in Japan but sounds very much like IDELIX pliable display technology I first ran into in 2001. Alas the company’s site is in Japanese. But as I understand it, both technologies put a moveable lens in front of the map, providing details in the center but context to the rest of the map at the edges. IDELIX licensing it to I think BEA for use in imaging software.
