Sequels are rarely better than the original. But Mark Crosbie has done a fantastic job making the first LEGO Street View Car into an even better LEGO Street View Car. This is NOT the sequel that bombed.
This time, the car is wifi ready. Mark writes:
The car uses the Dexter Industries dGPS sensor to record the current GPS coordinates.
The phone also uses an iPhone to take pictures. Everything can then be seen in Google Earth.
A picture of what it looks like in Google Earth is featured to the right.
You can also see his video below.
And a final note, if you want to see the car in person, it will be at the Robot Olympiad in Abu Dhabi next week onwards at the LEGO stand. More information about the event can be found at http://www.wroboto.org
This is a fantastic project that Mark has done an incredible job with. Be sure to drop by his website or leave him a note below.
