Having Fun with Google Earth and SpaceNavigator

This is the geekiest way of using a SpaceNavigator I've seen yet (not recommended for safe driving!):

The more technically oriented folks here will be impressed by the fact the guys in the video have developed a way to project photos taken on the fly and map them into Google Earth in real-time. But, most of us will just think this is incredibly geeky. Read more about the SpaceNavigator (now available with GE 4.1 for the Mac), and about the company behind the video - Pict-Earth - David Ralliant (who also did the geeky remote controlled plane video) did this video.

    If there is an airbag in that wheel. The driver is dead if it fires.

    Frank,

    When are we going to see google maps/earth in car navigation? Most Sat Nav devices use poor maps etc at the moment. A device using Google Maps would be a massive hit. Also being able to search directions on the web and send them to a sat nav device (like BMW Germany) would be awesome.

    Bigbewo,

    This has already been done through a partnership between Google and VW. I think they demo'd the prototypes about a year ago. Some details and snapshots can be found here (or on any number of car blogs):
