Can’t get there with the Google Car? Try the Google Trike!

Monday, October 19, 2009

Although WAY off topic, what Google does is always interesting to me so I thought I’d repost a quick message from Marcos Velez on the Google Trike! 

From the geniuses at Google, now comes the Google Trike.  It is a bicycle modified to take the place of the Google Car that generates the Street View feature of Google Maps.  Their goal is to enable Google Maps to extend the Street View feature to bike trails and other locations where cars can't, or shouldn't, go.

If anyone is interested, click on the link below.  They are asking for suggestions on where to go next.  They also have a short silly video that shows the trike in action, and links to four locations that have already been enhanced to have Street View for non-street areas.
