Google Street View

As soon as I heard the news, I’ve tried out the Street View. Unfortunately it doesn’t have Nagoya, where my home is now, covered. But most areas around Tokyo are covered.

It’s quite interesting to see what they did with the ‘face recognition’ technology. Anything recognised as ‘human face’ gets blurring effect. That’s anything from car wheel to, presumably, posters on the street…

Anyway, here are a couple of screenshots.

    Probably Google think ” Nagoya is not big city, but country, hahaha”.

    That is “Nagoya tobashi”.
