What would Middle Earth look like from space?

Middle Earth From Space

A team of Danish programmers is rendering Middle Earth on a truly planetary scale. As reported on the Fast Company Design blog, “The scale model is called the Middle-Earth Project, and it is so epic in scope that you can see the Eye of Sauron from space, yet so finely detailed that you could zoom from space right into Bilbo’s Hobbit hole.”

You can watch a video demo of the project on YouTube, or download a demo of the program for yourself here, or join in on the lively conversation about the project over at io9.
