Our World In Pixels

Posted 09 March 2011 - 08:37 AM

This may be the wrong place to post but basically... take a look at this!

Any discussion would be great. Personally I do not see how it is possible, but it seems to be a very large map (possibly the entirety of China?) created in pixels with a 3D perspective.

Looks like a Facebook game, doesn't it?

Not to be racist, but does anyone else find it amusing that it says "yellow life" at the top left of the map? (Or at least, that's what Google Translate thinks it says).

I just noticed that lol. Google should fix that before some one that gives a crap gets mad enough to sue.
