Via our SEW Forums, a great find. Check out this video showing how PhD candidate Edward Tse of the Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs at the University of Calgary rigged Google Earth into an interactive tabletop display:
The video shows how using your hands, you can spin the world, zoom in, give it voice commands like "fly to boston" that flies you there within Google Earth and more.
Expect a Google job offer to be coming, Edward. Expect that tabletop display to be showing up in the Googleplex, which has been woefully lacking in cool stuff for visitors lately.
The Google search query display in the lobby, the map showing search activity around the world, the lava lamps, the white board with the Google Master Plan (see here and here). Old news. Besides, you can interactively play Warcraft III on the table, as well.
