Video: Watch Google Earth Displayed on 48 Screens

Released in 2005, Google Earth remains one of the coolest products to come out of the Mountain View, Calif. company. Available on nearly every platform (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, and even FreeBSD), the virtual globe application allows people to look at any part of the world in 3D. It's mind-blowing when viewed on a computer screen or tablet, imagine using it on something the size of a movie theater screen. That's what a Parisian team of engineers have done. 

Using a Google-developed technology called Liquid Galaxy which allows people to view Google Earth on multiple connected displays, this French group pushed the tech to its limit by running Google Earth on 48 displays. All together the displays output nearly 100 million pixels and measures around 40 square meters. It's huge. To see this stunning display, you'll have to go to France. The project is currently on display in the Paris Center for Architecture and Urbanism. 

Peep the video above to see the display being built.
