Golden Gate Fly-Over

“Golden Gate Fly-over is a moviemap of the San Francisco
Bay Area from the air made the Exploratorium. We used a special
gyro-stabilized helicopter camera and satellite navigation to film
along a precise ten by ten mile grid centered on Golden Gate Bridge.
This exhibit uses a single trackball as the input device, so it
is very easy to use. It allows moving around the Bay Area at unnaturally
fast speeds. The goal was not to re-create a helicopter ride as
much as to create a hyper-real experience, something impossible
to experience in the physical world.” [2]
