Aliens Attack on Street View
You can now create a little Street View based movie showing your house being destroyed by aliens. A new website, promoting the release of the Independence Day movie, allows you to view your house on Google Maps Street View, after it has been destroyed by an invading army of aliens.
Just enter your address into Independence Day - My Street and you can view a little Street View scene showing the alien inflicted destruction at your address. Pan around the Street View scene and you can see fires burning, smoke rising and darkened skies. Look up and you might also spot a fleet of UFO's flying around overhead.
This amazing Street View interactive is possible because of Google's undocumented Street View depth library, You can make use of this depth data in Street View yourself with the GSVPanoDepth library, developed by 0xef.
