Immersive Media VW Bug with MapThere's been lots of buzz all over the web, at blogs small and large about this already (since on or around May 29), about Google Street View already, but I couldn't help but look up a couple of specific venues that are of particular memory/interest/curiosity to me.

Is this your house? Is this your car? Is this your life?

Google is watching. May the stalkers delight and the paranoid remember to take their meds.

Hey Mountain View, remember that with great power comes great responsibility.

Immersive 360 degree CameraFrom a technical perspective, this is simply amazing. The sheer amount of engineering and time that went into this is appalling. Looks like Google contracted with Immersive Media to get this Herculean task accomplished. So if you see one of their little VW Bugs driving past you, be sure to smile for the camera!

The pictures of the hardware are very cool. Do you know of any sites that have info on how it is implemented?
