Google's Got a Street View Tricycle

Google’s Street View cars do a great job of photographing the streets and roads of cities but what about the beaten tracks and laneways of small towns? In an effort to capture all those hard-to-reach areas Google has enlisted the help of some high-tech trikes.

This is a great idea to give people all over the world a chance to see the back streets of Italy and capture images of monuments and tourist attractions that aren’t accessible by car. That said, we can’t imagine those who are already unhappy with the idea of Google Street View will be too impressed that Google can now fit into smaller spaces.

What do you guys think of the Google trike? Aside from looking like a lot of hard work for the poor Googler on the back, we quite like the idea.
