Find Waldo on Google Earth

Where's Waldo on Google Earth? Genius!

Mixing art with technology is exactly what Media Arts student Melanie Coles did for her graduating project. . . and it is bigger (literally) and better than most grad art assignments I've encountered (yes she deserves an A!). Melanie's project, entitled Where On Earth Is Waldo creates a Google Earth Where's Waldo inspired game. With the help of volunteers, Melanie and her team were able to create a gigantic Waldo painting to be placed on rooftops throughout Vancouver, Canada. The best part? Waldo will only be seen via Google Earth, so the entire world can play "Where's Waldo: Google Earth Edition" as well!

The project will be exhibited at the Emily Carr Graduation Exhibit 08 opening May 3, 2008.

My friends and I have a game where we get points for things found on Google Earth. Helps to keep away the cabin fever on these long Alaska winter nights. Two thumbs and toes up, very clever!!
