Google Wallet View

  [vote for,

Partly inspired by hi rez pics of the Titanic...but mostly inspired by how empty my wallet looks these days.

An add-on for one of them Google camera cars, a series of endoscopey things which can sneak into people's wallets and take a photo.

       Sooner or later, Google will embark on a project to map the location of each atom in and on the Earth. According to Moore's Law, we ought to reach that capability in something like 150 years.   

       Most things would then be made much easier. To sequence a genome, you just root through the relevant bits of the map. To discover the lost hanging gardens of Babylon or MH370, ditto.

       The number of people who predict the failure of Moore's Law doubles approximately every 2 years. In fact, since I don't yet have a law named after me, I'm declaring that to be Buchanan's Law.

       Such an endoscope would disturb the wallet moths.   

       // Ah, but Moore's law stopped working long ago. // Well Forty years when he only expected ten ain't bad.   

       I guess all possible improvements are done, and the last one to leave, please turn out the lights.

       What's tumbleweed look like I wonder, squished in my wallet. Hahahaha

       In the wallet is a card with a digital ident. The ident is a reference of the current state of monetary affairs.   

       Google wallet view decodes this number and produces a picture. This picture can be a strip mine, hole in the ground, some coins, wads of cash, bars of gold/platinum or small island country. And with the right augment and payment, these pictures can be seen above the people in the street.
