Hasbro is relaunching one of it’s real classics – the Star Wars action figure Millenium Falcon.
“The Hyperdrive now illuminates with a cool blue glow when activated by 2 of the 4 authentic sound effects buttons that simulate the “Jump into Hyperspace” and the casual “Flyby.” There is also the engine “Jump-Start” sounds and the forward mounted cannons strobe red and “fire” when activated. ”
Hmm…the official product page over at Hasbro says that this item was re-launched a year ago… so much for that ‘news’ boing boing
As always with Google, it’s only a ‘beta’. Currently it only contain map data for USA, but that will change later on. A really promising service with great usability. The vector graphics are really smooth, and very fast loading. You can of coure get directions to get from A to B. Find a pizza near C and so on.
