Google Maps + Nintendo DS = cool physical Gmap hack

Engadget has posted about an interesting "physical" Google Maps hack that Alexei Karpenko (aka natrium42) has created using the Nintendo DS, a home-grown serial interface that he designed and this GPS module. The maps get downloaded from the Google Maps servers using some scripts that he has written, then the individual tiles (GIF images) are then displayed on the DS unit.

Here is a picture of the physical Google Maps hack:
