Giant Urban Cursor Tracks Its Movements In Google Maps

If the Urban Cursor — a giant cursor that captures its movements in Google Maps using GPS — worked in real life, I would use it to minimise Afghanistan, maximise Sweden, and drag and drop some parts of Madrid to the rubbish bin.

Urban Cursor is an art installation by Danish designer Sebastian Campion. He made it for the festival Ingràvid in Figueres, Spain. As people moved it, the GPS sitting on top recorded the motion, sending the coordinates to Google Maps and publishing photos. [Urban Cursor via Design Boom]
