Four Dimensional Street View
One street has those Google spinny cameras mounted every few inches along the top of the power poles running 24/7
So you can walk down this particular street any time, any hour,
any day looking wherever you want. Like having the power over
time and space.
Walk down the street with the time sped up, or slowed down.
Speed it up so much it takes you three days to walk down the
One thing that
comes to mind is you would virtually follow
anybody on the street around and see where they went. Not sure
why you'd want to do that but you could. Good stalker tool I guess.
Another reason you might want to do this is...
oh yea, you could reverse time too. Walk down the street forward
while all the cars and people are going backwards.

||Don't have power poles in the UK....most cabling goes underground, 'cept maybe phone lines..
||I guess if it's open to everybody, that means that it
isn't "big brother"? More like "little brother".
||If you're going to do that, might as well add speakers. Bring the wonderfulosity of the Internet into public spaces.
