Google Now Has Adorably Goofy 360-Degree Street View Backpack Cameras


So on top of its fleet of world-roaming Street View cars, Google now has 360-degree backpack cameras to take in the world. And now you want one too.

The packs aren’t the most inconspicuous of cameras — sorta like a Ghostbuster fighting a giant green ladybug — so they’ll probably get pranked and mugged-for pretty hard. But who cares! Giant spaceprobe-like camera, hooked up to an Android phone? Very cool.

The Trekker has 15 5MP cameras, weighs 16kg, and its battery lasts “all day”. They’re prototypes only for now.
