Today's Cool Site...
Amazing street scenes
I'm a huge fan of Google's mapping services. Google Earth is nothing short of amazing with its satellite imagery.
And Google recently improved its Maps site by adding Street View. With Street View, you see street-level imagery. That means you can tour some cities virtually!
Of course, you'll see some strange things in Street View. Take, for example, Sampsonia Way in Pittsburgh.
Street View has captured a parade and a marathon. You'll also see swordsmen battling and a laser zapping a Pittsburgh Steelers fan.
Could all of this be real? Yes and no. The scenes were actually staged by a couple of artists and a slew of participants. And Google was happy to help with the art project.
At today's site, you can see the staged scenes in all of their glory. Then, you can watch behind-the-scenes videos of the project. What fun!
