[TIPS] Interactive google earth hologram?

Yes, it's INTERACTIVE! You've got to see this: http://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2008/07/hologram_google_earth.html

Now, for years - many years - I've been telling my students that when they got as old as I was that they would be watching 3d, holographic tv instead of the flat screens. This is the front runner of its kind. Watch this video as the presenter interacts with the Google Earth hologram. He spins it, enlarges it.. well, you just watch for yourself.

Now project this out another 20 years. Even ten years. What other kinds of educational applications can you see in these holograms? Science will NEVER be the same. RIght now, geography will never be the same!

Oh... did you notice where I found this article? The gearthblog again. Are you subscribed yet?
