The Google Glitch
Street View is one of our favorite features of Google Maps and Google Earth. It lets people explore places in far-off lands without the expensive plane ticket and hotel bills. The 3D experience was introduced in 2007 for five major US cities before spreading to over 100 countries and territories. As you would expect, it’s had its hitches.
Google uses 360-degree image capturing devices to generate the Street View environments we click through, and anytime you mix movement with a panoramic or 306-degree shot, there’s a chance of body parts being inadvertently transposed onto others, erasing heads, or in this case, adding a very convincing third leg that would allow this guy to run a three-legged race alone.
