Trackstick shows your movement on Google Earth

Well, if you’re already bored looking at Google Sky, perhaps a new way to watch yourself is in order. It’s called the Trackstick, and it does pretty much what you think it does. At an inch and a half long, this mini GPS receiver check up on where you are at regular intervals, and then store that info in its 1MB of space. Then, when you get back to your computer, it mashes that data up with Google Earth to show you where you went, and how you got there. We’re not sure how they’re going to market this, but we already see campaign slogans such as “Figure out why you’re sleeping on that guy’s lawn after that party.” No word yet on whether version 2.0 will be able to answer the question “Where did my pants go?”
