Google Earth for iPhone and iPod touch


As reported in PC magazine, 3 researchers from microsoft has introduced a new interaction technique with mobile phone using two linear arrays of discrete infrared (IR) proximity sensors, specifically ten Avago HSDL-9100-021 940nm IR proximity sensors spaced 10 millimeters apart.
