DIY Street View Camera

As part of a course at the United States Military Academy at West Point, maker Roy D. Ragsdale developed aprototype Street View-like camera using a laptop, $300 in off-the-shelf components, and open source software. A Python script captures eight 1280x1024px JPEG files that are then stitched together and uploaded to Google Earth.
