I happened across this while checking out Tippingpoint’s DVLabs Blog. googleDrive allows you to drive a miniature car through Google Maps. googleDrive is some JavaScript magic done by Samuel Birch who runs phatfusion , a site with some great plugins for the mootools JavaScript toolkit. It actually forces you to stay on all the roads as you move your vehicle around the map.

It’s fun just to move around in a big city or try tracing your route to and from work. He’s also working on a racing version of the application using the sattelite view and a dedicated circuit track in some major metro areas.

Give it a spin.
