Surf Google Earth on Wii Board
A couple of Google engineers have adapted the Wii Balance Board to surf the world in the Google Earth program.
Members of the Google Earth team took the opportunity to set up shop at MacWorld and display "Earth Surfer", a mod for Google Earth allowing players to hop on the Wii Balance Board and travel the satellite-imaged world on a hovering milk truck.
Oster's code will be open sourced under the Apache License, allowing the code to be used by anyone for commercial and non-commercial products. Earth Surfer and its code will be available next week on the Google Mac Developer Playground.
