180LA, Sony Head from Space to Sea with New Vaio Project

Now that the “Rocket Project” is in the books ,180 LA and Sony are coming down from the heavens and heading underwater in a new effort called “Project Shiphunt.” The venue now shifts from the Nevada desert to Michigan, where a group of students will once again use Vaio laptops (with Intel tech included) in the hopes of finding, yes, a sunken ship. After starting their deep-sea exploration schooling at the NOAA’s Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary in Alpena, MI, the kids along with expedition lead Dr. James P. Delgado will eventually get down to work.

To coincide with the actual ship hunt, which will run from late spring through the summer, 180LA with the help of digital production shop Unit9 have launched a game (which they claim is one of the first ever created in Google Earth) called “Oceans of Treasure” (trailer above), which lets you the user collect clues and data then virtually search for a sunken ship via provided Sony/Intel technology. Why do we have a sudden urge to watch The Goonies?
