Red Indian on Google Earth!!

” Here’s another weird finding on Google Earth. Somewhere in Alberta in Canada you can spot mountains or large hills that look like the face of an Indian.

It looks pretty real, even a lot more realistic than the face on Mars in my opinion. It’s also pretty big, I used the measure tool in Google Earth to measure the size of the Native American’s forehead and its about 225 meters (0.14 miles) long.You can check it out in Google Maps or just enter 50° 0’38.20″N 110° 6’48.32″W in Google Earth. And like someone in our comment section said, with a bit of imagination you can see he has an earbud in his ear (maybe he’s listening to his iPod?)

Revolution 3D Editor


I recently completed my latest software called Revolution 3D Editor, its called so because it is based on revolution 3D Graphics engine. It is a 3D Editor similar to 3DS MAX(not that extensive) it can load, save & edit 3DS, DXE, MS3D, MDL(Quake I), MD2(Quake II), X & BSP(Counter Strike) formats and supports animation too!

Anyway the Point of this post is that those people interested in 3D Programming with VB6 or VC++ try this engine, download it from www.revolution3d.net its prety good!
