Enormous LED screen helps Las Vegas retail center pop
Salt Lake City — The world’s highest-resolution LED screen is on display in Las Vegas. The enormous screen, approximately 310 ft. wide by 60 ft. tall and populated with close to 11 million pixels, is the feature attraction of the Harmon Corner Retail Center, on the northeast corner of the Las Vegas Boulevard. The three-level center is anchored by Walgreens.
In addition to providing an attention-getting canvas to support the variety of brands housed within the retail development, the screen also devotes four hours of each day to custom programming ranging from "mind-blowing" content illusions to supporting artistic animations and interactive special events all designed and created to cause viewers to stop, snap, post and tweet.
The LED screen utilizes Yesco Electronics’ surface mount diode technology. The technology was selected due to its high brightness and contrast capabilities, along with the fact that the compact size of the individual modules could achieve the smooth radius required for the screen to ‘skin’ the architecture seamlessly.

Store of the Week: The Hab, Mumbai, India
The art of sewing comes alive at The Hab, a one-stop shopping destination in Mumbai, India, for all things sewing. The colorful store offers a fresh and youthful take on one of retailing’s more staid, and slightly old-fashioned, categories, and more than lives up to its motto: “A hipper side of sewing.”
Owned by USHA International Ltd., which manufactures a wide range of consumer products, including sewing machines, The Hab (short for haberdashery) offers a comprehensive lineup of product. From threads, buttons and beads in all colors and sizes to laces and zippers to stitching tools and the latest in sewing machines, The Hab stocks anything and everything a sewer could ever need.
More than just sell product, The Hab is designed to inspire people to create, innovative and experience the art of sewing. A series of demo stations — each outfitted with the very latest sewing machines — allow for a hands-on experience. Experts are on hand to help customers create their own personalized fashions.
Along with the ongoing demos throughout the day, sewing classes and related design workshops are also available.
A neon-colored sewing machine installation in the front window sets the tone for the high-energy, modern interior. A spiral staircase takes shoppers to a library stocked with specialty books and international publications related to sewing, knitting and crafts.
The Hab was conceptualized and designed by architect Pinakin Patel and design firm Grandmother India Design.
