Goggles – put Google Maps to good use August 11, 2006

What a brilliant idea, and very well executed as well. Take some large well known cities and get some good, low altitude maps from Google. Then I imagine they cache these as the scrolling is very responsive. Next stick a Flash airplane over the top, which you can fly, and let people play at flying around Google Maps – you can even shoot things (but not with any permanent damage). An amazingly simple idea, well executed and fun (it’s even got a good name) – I like it.
