  Whispers About Stealth Startup Vutool
Whispers About Stealth Startup Vutool - Check out this article, this sounds like something that I've sort of dreamed and talked about for quite some time... This start-up is basically greating a Google Earth, but from street level, capturing high-resolution images of street-level... There's talk that they've been acquired by Google and that Google plan to integrate this with Google Earth. Given how Google typically work, they'd open-up the API for this - so then imagine what the hackers will add into this, imagine playing hide-and-seek in a city, cops & robbers, etc... Doing virtual drive-throughs of a long-distance trip to a new city... Amazing stuff...
