Spotted: Google Street View Trike

SPOTTED BY: Torontoist Flickr Pool contributor emanintdot.
WHERE: Yonge-Dundas Square
WHEN: Approximately 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday
WHAT: By now we’re largely familiar with the Google Street View car, which traverses city streets to record the details of our thoroughfares. But cars can’t get everywhere, and in its quest for thoroughness (a good or bad thing, depending on how you look at it) Google has also outfitted smaller, more nimble vehicles with its 360 degree cameras. The Google Street View trike records hard-to-reach places like laneways and alleys, and it was on display for curious onlookers yesterday.

    Do you suppose this is the job you get if you've been good? Or if you've been bad?

    He doesn't look very happy. Too bad that box he's pulling around doesn't have dry ice and fudgesicles in it.

    I'm not sure that photos taken at a Google media event qualify as “spotted”… http://cnw.ca/en/releases/arch

    What an awesome summer job! Who wouldn't want to bike (trike?) around Toronto, get paid to do it, and put Google on your resume? Sign me up.
