Google Earth Open Sources The Liquid Galaxy

Google Earth is pretty cool to check out on your PC and even on your smartphone. But what's even cooler is to fly around the world in an immersive, surrounding group of eight 55-inch 1080p plasma displays wrapped around you.

Google built this "Liquid Galaxy" setup was a cool thing that was shown at various conferences, and now the entire software required to run the multi-monitor has been open sourced.

Check it out in action below.

    Cool but bad choice on the TVs, the large bezel ruins the whole experience.

    That was really neat. That joystick looked ridiculously sensitive though, he was barely even touching it and the screens were flying past.
