Plasma tubes array is a film display that is able to realize an extra large area emissive display, and also be expected to realize the new industrial applications of wall size display because of its attractive characteristics such as ultra-thin, lightweight, flexible and low power consumption. We had successfully developed a prototype display of 3 m $\times$ 2 m screen size which consisted of 6 of 1 m $\times$ 1 m sub-modules with seamless connected structure. The weight, thickness and power consumption of the display film were 7.5 kg, 1 mm, and 1200 W, respectively. It enables people to get an immersive experience with high quality real-size images shown on this display, which opens a door to the new world of natural communication in a virtual environment.
