The Google Earth Carpets are Out of this World

Munich-born designer David Hanauer has created the coolest, most original accessories for your living room: Google Earth Carpets. These interactive rugs are made from screen shots taken from Google Earth images of mostly locations in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Hanauer slightly retouches the images, making them perfectly unique and great conversation starters for anyone who is a pro at entertaining guests.

While the aerial shots on the Google Earth Carpets are a little fuzzy and not so easy to distinguish, they certainly will have your guests talking. The patterns are strangely beautiful and impossible to ignore.

The mystery factor of the Google Earth Carpets is perhaps the best thing about the rugs and makes them impossible to resist.
