Cool Link Of The Day: Goggles

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on August 5, 2006

Goggles bills itself as a Google Maps flight simulator. It’s not really, but it;’s a nifty bit of AJAX mashup work, putting a small 3D plane in your browser, and using it to control Google Maps.

Here I am flying over Park Lane.

Fly the little plane around the map, using your keyboard, as aerial photographs from Google Maps scroll by underneath. It gives a whole new look to Google sightseeing. Only a few cities so far (including London and New York), but fun!

Just don’t crash the plane…
