New toy for Revit and Navisworks

Oh, how I hope this makes all of you 2D line drawing people jealous.

You know you've wondered what Google Earth would look like across a curved, eight-display installation, and now your most stupendous dreams are a reality thanks to Liquid Galaxy. That's the moniker that's been given to Jason Holt's 20 percent project, which he's just now getting to showcase to the world at the TED conference in San Francisco. Reportedly, eight Linux machines are tied to the process, and he's able to fly through the digital skies via voice commands and sheer mental strength. Or maybe it's just voice commands. Head past the break for a cockpit view, but be sure to close one eye if you're prone to motion sickness.

This isn't so revolutionary to those of us who have been using 3Dconnexion devices in Google Earth for a long time. Speaking of a long time waiting, when will Revit navigation be supported for 3Dconnexion?
