Placeroulette anyone..

As a fun demostration of just how extenive StreetView coverage now is, it’s hard to beat Globe Genie, the product of MIT student Joe McMichael. Try it without the Map display to test just how powerful our ability to identify places from just visual clues is or is not 🙂

Can you tell where this is ?

    Shouldn’t we see the odd ‘flasher’ beside the road in a raincoat in some scenes? This would create the true ‘roulette’ experience. Of course the Street View would have the ‘private’ bits blurred?
