    It's here in Canada... and it's pretty damn amazing.

    Punch in your address and take a look at your front door.

    Slick.

    I checked it out this morning, very freaky stuff. I'm not really a fan of it, invasion of privacy.

    My coworker looked at hers and her hubby was in the picture getting in his car.

    Too much and I don't see the point.

    Yeah... it's pretty freaky. Your coworker may be able to request that the image be "removed" if he doesn't like being in it. Any personal details like faces and license plates etc... are usually blurred out.

    I've used that in the states but I didn't know it was availble in Canada. It's crazy amazing.

    Haven't they had something very similiar with google earth? I guess this is a bit better and you also don't have to download anything to use it.

    I think it's great and neat and impressive but a little spooky.

    Who will be the first company to build a game based on this? TRUE VR just got a little bit closer.
