Found this incredibly easy graphical user interface for Google Earth at atlasgloves. It’s DIY virtual reality gloves made from white LEDs and ping pong balls. The “heavy lifting” is the software that integrates the glove movements via a web cam with the Google Earth software. Happily, atlas gloves has written it and you can download it at their site. They also have a nice demo of the atlas gloves in action.

Here’s a Youtube link done by

3dconnexion’s space navigator is also cool but doesn’t appeal to my geeky sensibility the way the atlas gloves do.
