Google Maps with Frickin' lasers!
SiliconValleyWatcher.com is reporting the following:
Google plans to use trucks equipped with lasers and digital photographic equipment to create a realistic 3D online version of San Francisco, and eventually other major US cities. (Read the full story here)
Some bloggers have this to say:
I thought the satellite images in Google maps were pretty cool but this is getting out of hand.
When I heard that my first question was “how do they plan to do this?” Well a truck armed with laser and digital cameras that would make any Flickr user drool and float away.
Heh, I wonder if Flickr will do anything with 'frickin' lasers? "Flickr lasers".. (?Seen any Austin Powers movies?) Hehehe.. Okay, it's early, and it's a Friday. ;)
