Google Street View Backpack Is Android Powered And Heavy

There are many places where people want Street View, but the Google trucks can’t drive. Sometimes, they can’t even get a bike to traverse the area. So what do they do? Make an Android powered backpack with a ball of cameras above your head. This will allow them to collect street view data in places previously impossible to get to with their cameras.

The backpack has two batteries that should last a full day of hiking through sand and snow. You’ll have to be towing this 40 pound pack on your back though, so you’d need to be quite fit. But wouldn’t a street view of the Grand Canyon be nice?
