Goggles, the Google Map flight sim


In a neat bit of Internet mashuppery, someone has combined a low-grade flight sim with Google Maps and created Goggles. You can fly your plane over the maps, shoot at things, bank, climb, and crash. It’s a fun little time-waster, and I spent a few minutes buzzing over Tokyo before smashing into what I think was part of Shinjuku. 🙂
