At the PDC Showoff tonight the ACE Lab at Carlton University in Canada led by Jon Wade, submitted a video that showed an incredible multi-channel version of the Virtual Earth control that provides a 180 degree view of Virtual Earth 3D.

The screen is created using 8 high-end full 1080p projectors. The code is a modified version of a sample project with a custom camera class to property adjust the FOV and camera offset for each projector and some code to synchronize the camera positions across the network. In all it took them roughly 10 hours of coding to build this viewer. 

You must check this out. FREAKING AWESOME.

For best results, I suggest viewing the high-quality WMV.
