>>Hey, we’re here at the Google booth at
Mac World 2009 in San Francisco. What we’re looking at right now is an application
that Google Engineer David Oster created to surf Google Earth images using a Wii Fit board.
This is David, the Google Engineer, who created this application.
David, can you explain a little more about how this works?>>OSTER: I took the wonderful Monster Milk
Truck app, which is a demo of using Google Earth browsing plugin, and gives you a Milk
Truck traveling over the Earth. You control it by leaning forward to go forward,
leaning back to back, left for left, and right for right.
It uses Bluetooth drivers for Nintendo Wii Balance Beam that I wrote and we’re open-sourcing.
You can use them in other programs. Please enjoy it.
It’s great stuff.
