Google designed a special immersive setup called Liquid Galaxy to experience Google Earth the "right way." The right way means using eight 55-inch LCD Screens. A Google Earth Liquid Galaxy system is for instance installed at the Tech Museum in San Jose. Now Google announced that it released everything you need to build and run Liquid Galaxy system.

Liquid Galaxy features are integrated in latest release of Google Earth, and Google open-sourced all the supporting work, from their Ubuntu sysadmin scripts to the mechanical design of their custom frames. If you have the funds and know-how you can follow the instructions on this quick start page to build your own Liquid Galaxy.

Liquid Galaxies don’t have to be made from eight big LCD screens; the view sync features scale from two to dozens of screens. And they can run more than just Google Earth; Googlers had success playing video in sync in on Liquid Galaxies, and even modified a Free Software video game for after-hours fun.
