Demo: Google Liquid Galaxy

“Google’s Liquid Galaxy is… a wraparound view of 8 LCD screens providing a truly immersive experience of Google Earth and Street View.”

I’m told by Adobe folks working at the TED conference that the bandwidth used to power this really isn’t that extreme. [Via Tobias Hoellrich]

    Now, THAT is cool. I especially like the sounds in the background – trucks, distant voices, crunchy Dorito bags – gives a very lo-tech feel to a very hi-tech enterprise. I like that.

    Could we come up with a more exaggerated name though? How about: “Google: Eschatology Denied” or “Google: Olympian Joy” or “Google: Dominated Supercluster.” It could be introduced with that clip of Homer talking about sneering down at Nature’s creation with contempt. . .

    Wow! Very cool and as noted above someone seems to have settled into a comfortable chair with a bag of doritos. Would love to see this thing.
