Google Street View of the Amazon Forest?! Yep, They Did It [VIDEO]

I love Google street view. I somehow get this voyeuristic excitement when I use it even though I know the images are from the past. I studied abroad in Japan, and since my return, I’ve used Google Street View to take nostalgic trips through photos of the routes used to bike around town.

It makes sense that a technologically advanced country such as Japan has comprehensive Google Street View maps, but now Google’s gone even further by venturing into the Amazon (the actual forest not the website.)

Is this the future? Will the entire planet be available for online tours 50 years from now? As cool as that sounds, it also makes me worry we could be watched everywhere we go. Although, it would be fun to be the one watching.

Check out a video explaining how Google was able to traverse the Amazon to capture the streamless flow of photos needed for Google Street View.
