Street View Fun

Here’s a fun video:

On the other side of the Atlantic, to promote the UK band Editors’s new album, Sony has produce a new streetview hack, where you have to browse around London to discover hidden things :

This is how it works: a cleverly hacked version of Google Street View allows users to preview tracks from the album in the areas of London that inspired them.
