It’s creepy, but I’m facinated…

This has been around for a while within the last couple days, I’ve been messing around with Google Maps Street View.  In a few major cities, they sent a van out running around with a 360 degree camera on top and started taking pictures.  The result is you can pick a street and zoom all the way down to the street and pan around as if you were almost there.

Here’s a guy’s house on Oldspower.com, haha.

To use it you just go to maps.google.com and click on the “Street View” button in the top right.  Then the cities available will have a camera icon on them.  Zoom in and any blue outlined street you can double click on and it will show you the view from street level.  Pretty crazy!

I was checking out Las Vegas Blvd. earlier.  Heck one of these days you’ll be able to take a trip without even leaving your house!
