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.
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.

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.
