google_globe<p> I had a chance to see this globe when I visited Google earlier this month. Like the updating search terms in the Google lobby, the globe is very much a “oh neat” type thing. </p>

The colors represent the languages being searched and the height of each beam relates to activity. There's a legend just off to the side that tells you what language is what. You can zoom in and rotate the globe in a number of directions.

Oh Neat.
