Recently Google has launched backpack camera to chat world. So the device will enable the internet techs to chart areas that its infamous Street View cars simply cannot reach. The Trekker backpack cameras will allow Google staff to map everywhere they can physically reach, from mountain pistes to jungle tracks. This is so made to make you reach places that are out of your reach.
The development follows news that Google plans to generate 3D maps for entire metropolitan areas for use on its mobile devices, which will also involve the use of cameras mounted on aeroplanes.
In recent years the search engine has been heavily criticised for its use of Street View cars which photographed entire cities from street level and which, it transpired, had secretly harvested personal information from unsecured household wifi networks.
However, in the ongoing race with its rival Apple to produce three-dimensial maps, the company said the 40lb backpack camera represented “another step forward” in its bid to produce a comprehensive map of the world.
