A digital rainbow built using 150 Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablets will stand on London's Southbank for 24 hours, making a bright addition to the view over St Paul's Cathedral and the City.

Samsung unveiled its "midnight rainbow" installation last night (19 August) in a bid to show off the Galaxy Tab S tablet, which it launched in June.

The company has tweaked each tablet’s 10.5in display to show off a spectrum of colours, giving the effect of an 8-bit rainbow. The idea is to showcase the Galaxy Tab S’ advanced Super AMOLED display – and to give its Twitter followers a chance to win one for themselves through the #midnightrainbow competition.

Russell Taylor, the company’s vice-president of corporate marketing, said the rainbow had been chosen as a universally positive symbol. "Creating a midnight rainbow has never been done before," he said. "We're excited to introduce this installation to the iconic Southbank skyline, inspiring people to appreciate and capture colour in new ways."
