The latest GPS Satellite is successfully launched into orbit yesterday by the US Air Force Station. The NAVSTAR GPS was launched at 8:23 a.m in Floride : Mike was there, see the story in pocketgpsworld !! (No, "GPS is not only a military asset, but a national asset due to its civil
applications" said Capt. Bill Bakker, GPS IIR field program manager. We agree :-)
Today's "thanks god it's friday" subject isn't about this excellent website geopipi.com (discover it by yourself :-), but...architectural visualisation. Indusgeeks have uploaded a movie to YouTube to show that the ability to visualise, communicate and populate real
estate is real, cheap and more importantly easy to do with today's toolset.
The idea is to divide virtual real estate into 3 parts (so that your clients could visualise the design)
Location - Visualisation via Google Earth
Scrutiny - Examining the building in 3D Max
Second Life - Exploring the building within the virtual environment
What are we talking about ? Ok, look at the video and enjoy the music :
What's the mission of Google ? To organize the world's information, they say. And let's face it: In what area of life is the world's information more
disorganized ? Romance, of course !
This is not a new product. But how many of you know Google Romance ? It's not only "Chat, find your soulmate, and find love" please. It's much more, a product "that offers users both a psychographic matchmaking service and
all-expenses-paid dates for couples who agree to experience contextually
relevant advertising throughout the course of their evening".
"We thought we could use our search technology to help you find that special
someone, then send you on a date and use contextual ads to help you, ya know -
close the deal" said Jonathan Rosenberg, Google's senior vice president, product management. Well, you see, that's so easy !
