Despite carrier and retailer indications of delays for certain editions of Samsung’s new Galaxy S III, the company triumphantly announced its launch right on schedule tonight. Of course, here in the US we’re sadly on the outside looking in at the launch action going on in 28 countries as a new day dawns for the 29th, but at least there’s rumblings that our localized editions aren’t far off. As long as you’re looking for a 16GB Marble White quad-core Exynos juggernaut, you should be able to find it — if the machine translated Korean press release is too tough to bear, remember we’ve got all the launch details (and a review) right here.

The next time you’re in Toyko’s Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, it’s going to be hard to miss the updated Geo-Cosmos. This 20 foot globe was recently revamped and and thousands of LCD panels were ditched in favor of 10,362 OLED panels, which feature a resolution 10x greater than the older screens. The Mitsubishi Electric-made sphere is the largest such of its kind in the world. There are even interactive touchscreen panels dubbed Geo-Scope around the room that allow visitors to interact with a similar, although, flat representation of the globe including weather data and a simulation of Japan’s recent tsunami. Click through for the mesmerizing video.

You’ve already seen Android activations mapped around the globe over time, now how about some Google search volumes? Using WebGL and different color crayons for each language, the coders at Mountain View have put together the above Search Globe, which presents a single day’s worth of Google queries in a beautiful, skyscraper-infused visualization. Jacking yourself into the source link below (your browser can handle WebGL, right?) will let you twist and turn the model world for a closer exploration of global Google use. And if you get tired of that, there’s an alternative map showing world populations over 1990s — that’s available at the second link.

Fuel cell-powered cars provide the efficiency and driveability of an electric vehicle while also offering the unlimited range of a traditional gasoline powered car — assuming you can find a place to top off those hydrogen tanks. Right now that’s a bit of a problem, but Mercedes Benz is out to show that it’s not nearly as big of a hindrance as everyone makes it out to be. It’ll be driving the B-Class F-Cell model around the world, starting in Stuttgart and motoring down to Lisbon, flying over to the US and driving across that, then across Australia before hopping a boat to Shanghai and driving all the way across Asia, ultimately arriving back to Stuttgart facing in the same direction they left. The B-Class F-Cell can cover 400km on a tank and can be refilled in about three minutes. At this point we have no reason to believe that either Ewan McGregor nor Charlie Boorman will be along for the ride, but given how well things went in Log Way Round perhaps that’s for the best.

International readers, your day has come: the Dash will finally work for you. Sony has lifted restrictions on the device that prevented it from being used outside the US of A, meaning you can wake up with that company’s most advanced alarm clock ever regardless whether your bedding down in Belarus or shacking up in Shanghai. However, the company warns that “many providers automatically geo-filter their content so your experience with your Dash may vary depending on your location.” And, this not-so-cuddly Chumby is still being sold exclusively in the States, so it’s up to you to figure out how to import yours.
