Google develops new motion-sensing skydiving simulator ‘Map Diving’

Last year at Google’s I/O developer conference in San Francisco, founder Sergey Brin gave what’s been called the “mother of all demos,” a keynote speech that involved a team of skydivers wearing Google Glass landing on the roof of the conference center as he spoke. For this year’s I/O taking place next week, Google wants to one-up that by putting I/O attendees in virtual parachutes and letting them skydive anywhere on Earth.
