Always great to see a fellow Kiwi (New Zealander) get international recognition:

What began as a side project has gone global after a New Zealand student's software was picked up by Google and NASA.

"I never expected it to take off like this," said University of Waikato student Paul Hunkin.

"It started off as little afternoon project and it's gotten reasonably popular."

Hunkin might downplay his success, but NASA called the software an "innovative solution".

NASA's cool eight screen Google Earth viewer: http://open.nasa.gov/blog/2011/09/26/nasas-liquid-galaxy-an-overview/

Seems similar to Equalizer.

I wonder how these systems compare to AMD Eyefinity or NVIDIA Surround when running multiple GPUs with a large number of screens.
