Geek Dad John Knight built this “Electromagnetic Geospacial Globe and Remote View with Obligatory Goggles” with RFID tags and reader (Touchatag) to remote-control Google Earth on a steampunk’d tablet computer. Oh, and the goggles? They don’t do anything special. Yet.
John will be showing how he built it and talking about it this morning at Maker Faire Detroit. He’ll be presenting at 10am, at the MAKE Demo Stage.
