School Looks Like the Millennium Falcon, Can’t Do the Kessel Run in Under 12 Parsecs
Is this evidence that Parkland High School was built upon the ancient crash site of the Millennium Falcon? Are they secretly planning a Smugglers school? Did George Lucas re-edit this institution?

Google Earth Smooths Out its Rough Edges

Google Earth Smooths Out its Rough Edges
I remember back when Google Earth first launched. I thought it would be cool to see the planet right from my desktop and immediately went to find my house. The area where I live was so blocky and cut together from so many individual photos that it was impossible to make out any detail.

Ye Olde Mario World Map: 1-1 B.C.
If there’s one thing that gamers love, it’s Mario. And if there’s another thing that gamers love, it’s maps of virtual worlds.  And if there’s just one more thing that gamers love, it’s T-shirts. If you want to have all three, then vote for Glen Brogan’s Ye Olde Mario World T-shirt design.

Elder Scrolls V Map Hack: Skyrim Street View

Elder Scrolls V Map Hack: Skyrim Street View
It’s barely been a week since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released, but the benefits of owning it on the PC are already becoming apparent. Some Xbox 360 players are ridden with texture issues, some PS3 players are wracked with the more game breaking save file glitch.

Artist Turns Google Maps into Throw Rugs

Artist Turns Google Maps into Throw Rugs
I have never understood the need for rugs in a home; it’s like carpet for your carpet. Since hard floors are cold and never clean if you have pets or kids, I get why you might want a rug in that instance, though.

21KM Apple Logo: A Runner’s Tribute to Steve Jobs

21KM Apple Logo: A Runner’s Tribute to Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs’s announcement that he was stepping down as Apple Inc.’s CEO made waves in the news and in various blogs, which ran numerous stories and articles about his work ethics, the company that he co-founded, the 313 or so patents that are attributed or co-attributed to him, and, of course, about the man himself.

Google to Send Street View Tricycles Down Amazon and Rio Negro Rivers

Google to Send Street View Tricycles Down Amazon and Rio Negro Rivers
Something about the plan to send Google Street View tricycles down rivers in the Amazon jungle and along trails in the rainforests doesn’t sit right with me. Street View of my area covers one major highway.

LED Maps Light Up Wherever You’ve Been, or Where You’re Going
Do you travel a lot? While you could certainly use any of a number of digital tools to keep track of all the locations you’ve visited, it might be sort of cool to have a more physical manifestation of your journeys than just some Google Maps page that only exists in the digital ether of The Cloud.

Nicaragua Invades Costa Rica, Blames Google Maps

Nicaragua Invades Costa Rica, Blames Google Maps
If anything ever proved holding a high rank in any military the world over doesn’t mean you aren’t a dumb ass this does. Apparently, an error with a border on Google Maps has led to a bit of international scandal down in Central America.

Plan.B Concept: a Map for the Blind

Plan.B Concept: a Map for the Blind
I’m amazed every time I see blind people walking around on their own using only a cane to guide them. But what if there was also a way to make the sight-impaired “see” the surrounding geography?

Street Fighters by Country: Stereotypes Fight!

Street Fighters by Country: Stereotypes Fight!
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the World Warrriors are caricatures of their respective cultures, which is why GamesRadar’s The World According To Street Fighter is such an interesting piece, if only to remind us that street fighters Joe and Mike exist.

Quad-Rotor Autonomous Helicopter Eschews Gps in Favor of Lasers. Laz0rz!
Here’s another one of them MAVs that’ll soon be flying all over the place. A group of MIT students – Abe Bachrach, Anton de Winter, Ruije He, Garrett Hemann and Sam Prentice (I think I got +10 to my IQ after spelling their names) – developed an autonomous flight system that could sweep and analyze it’s environment in real-time.

But Your Zombies Are in Another Castle [Left 4 Dead Mod]

But Your Zombies Are in Another Castle [Left 4 Dead Mod]
You know what goes really well with Left 4 Dead? The Mushroom Kingdom. It’s genius! How did it take so long? Bright colors, blocky environments, and hordes of raging infected running around among the zombie-like goombas.
