Planetarium
Creator

Mr. Takayuki Ohira

Born in 1970, Kawasaki City, Japan. From the time he was in elementary school Ohira worked on his own planetarium. In 1990 as a university student Ohira succeeded in developing a lens projection type planetarium "Astroliner" that was unprecedented for an amateur. After that, he continued his work while employed at Sony Corporation, and in 1998 at the International Planetarium Association convention in London, Ohira demonstrated "MEGASTAR", which can project 1.5 million stars (1.7 million completed models), a number which was hundred times greater than any existing planetarium projector. In 2004, "MEGASTAR-II Cosmos" with 5.6 million projected stars enters World Guinness Record Book as the world’s most advanced Planetarium Projector. In 2005, he founded Ohira Giken. He has also appeared in Nescafe's Gold Blend TV commercial. Ohira co-developed with Sega Toys the very first home Planetarium "HOMESTAR“, which has proven a big hit with sales exceeding 1.15 million units worldwide (as of April, 2017).
