Google’s Streetview Comes To College, Beaver and Atherton

Google’s impressive and sometimes invasive Streetview imagery has come to downtown State College. The imagery was collected by one of these vehicles with a 360 degree camera mounted on the roof. From what I can tell by the shadows, the general green color of the flora, and the lack of people on the street, the imagery was taken during late May or early June in 2009 on a weekend at around 10 or 11 in the morning. The photos aren’t of the greatest quality, but it’s still pretty cool.

Below you’ll find a couple gems I found during my virtual trips down College and Beaver Avenues and Atherton Street. Most people in the photos have their faces blurred out to protect their privacy and most don’t even pay attention to the camera-laden automobile driving past them.

Let's Just Say He Got The Boot...
Remember all the lovely construction that started in May and ended in October?

Please feel free to post links and pictures if you find anything funny/cool/interesting on Streetview in State College.

Question of the Day: Sweet Mobile Apps

AT&T is sponsoring a pretty cool competition in which entrants can win $10,000 cash in scholarship money for creating a mobile device application. Teams of up to four people can enter a custom-built application for the purpose of e-learning.  The rules state that the “innovating e-learning mobile app” should be functional across multiple platforms. Submissions are due by September 15, 2010 and so far there are only ten teams signed up. So my question for you is:

If you could develop a mobile device application, what would it do?

State College has plenty of restaurants that always seem too far and too expensive — except when your parents are in town.
