Remember the Where's Waldo books you loved as a kid? Now you can play the high-tech, ultra-modern version with Google Earth!

Where On Earth Is Waldo? is the creation of Melanie Cole, a Media Art student who came up with the idea for her graduation project.

The glasses-clad, lanky geek in the striped white and red tee, matching hat (complete with pom-pom), jeans and his trust cane has been painted on Vancouver, BC rooftops, creating a larger-than-life game of Where's Waldo!

The final project will be shown as part of the Emily Carr Graduation Exhibit 08 in May. Stats for Google Earth Games Trending: Older & Warm
