At its "Next Dimension" Google Maps event, Google has introduced a backpack street view cam kit.
It is called "Street View Trekker" and weigh 18kg. With this kit, the Google street view is now able to go off-load.
Well, most likely the project will start from major destinations like national parks and so on, but I think this is a great project, so can check out the destination in advance...
Will this take away the joy and excitement of first time look at the new destination from us?
However it is very interesting project and if Google would need trekkers, I would like to sign up.
