Fujitsu and Customers Co-create New GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for Largest Animated Tablet Computer Mosaic
- New world record brings together artwork elements on 220 individual tablets to create a single large digital image
- Some 60-plus Fujitsu customers involved in co-creating the artwork, using Fujitsu STYLISTIC R726 tablets
- GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicators were on hand to confirm the new world record
The successful world record – verified by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicators – was created at the BMW Museum in Munich, during a customer dinner as part of Fujitsu’s annual event – Fujitsu Forum Munich. Customers attending the dinner – co-hosted by Citrix - contributed to the mosaic by each inserting at least one tile, in the form of a Fujitsu STYLISTIC R726 12.5-inch tablet, into a specially prepared wall. The finished mosaic showed the Fujitsu Forum image – which, on completion, transformed to reveal a moving digital landscape featuring a cherry tree, which came alive with blossoming flowers, symbolizing the fragility and beauty of life. GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicators confirmed the successful attempt and documented this record-breaking world achievement.
Duncan Tait, Corporate Executive Officer, SEVP and Head of Americas and EMEIA at Fujitsu, comments: “Co-creating a digital future with our customers is fundamental to the way Fujitsu approaches business. We’ve highlighted this focus with the theme for this year’s Fujitsu Forum “Human Centric Innovation - Digital Co-creation” which for us means bringing together the latest digital technology and expertise to create new possibilities for business and society. Achieving this GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title with our customers epitomizes this approach. The final image stylized Japanese landscape highlights how each collaborator has something important to contribute, to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.”
Anna Orford, GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicator, adds: “GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS are synonymous with extraordinary achievement. We research, measure, document and authorize the word’s superlatives. We also strive to maintain our high standards and have strict policies governing what makes a world record. We were on hand to monitor the attempt to create a new world record, the world’s largest digital mosaic, and we confirm that Fujitsu is now included among the ranks of current GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holders. Congratulations to all who participated in this successful attempt.”
