Google Earth


It was bound to happen sooner or later, and thankfully, Google Earth has already arrived on the Nexus One. Unfortunately, owners of other Android phones running 1.5 and 1.6 will not be able to use this application…yet. Video after the break.

When the Google Nexus One was announced, there were several cool new features unveiled for the device and Android 2.1: interactive wallpapers, 3D graphics and support for Google Earth.

Getting live Google Earth updates just got easier, with Live3D. This web application, developed by the Media and Machines lab of Washington University, overlays live webcam images onto Google Earth. More information. Video demonstration after the break.

There’s a database of live webcam images, and it’s super easy to add your own via drag ‘n drop tools in Google Earth itself. So as long as there’s a webcam operating in the area, you get a constantly updating view of whatever the webcam sees.
