Some crazy guy did this BIG project. I think it was his thesis project for a degree/diploma in art. Nice idea, though.
He sent a parcel with DHL around the world, tracking the parcels route. How far can tracking go?

It appears in the end that is all fake! Anyway, the idea is great, the visuals are convincing.
