Pretty cool little virtual tourism app. They must have spent a year taking all those 360 degree panoramic pictures. Mashing it up with Google maps so you can jump straight to an address, and then see a 360 degree picture of that location, makes this one slick little program. (It uses AJAX, natch, so you'll have to "temporarily enable" the site in NoScript. Temp enable google.com for associated Google maps fun.)

I'd love to put Boulder in this. Do you think they'd loan me one of their 360 degree cam and GPS rigs if I emailed them and asked?

Just to be absolutely sure I'm actually living in the year 2008, I should load this site up on my iPod Touch. ;]
