Control Street View With Superman Vision
Street Facing is an amazing experimental app that allows you to control the point of view on Google Street View with movements of your face and head.
The application uses a webcam to track the movements of your face to move the Street View image on your browser's screen. Look right and the Street View pans to the right, look left and the Street View will pan left.
At the moment the app only works in the Chrome browser. I also found that your face has to be well lit for the app to work. The app is hosted on GitHub so you can even delve into the code if you want to know how the app works.
