My guess is driving into a radiation heavy, post nuclear zone would void the warranty on Google’s Street View car, but I don’t think they’re too worried about that. Google has made some serious news today by sending one of its Street View drone cars into a legitimate ghost town, Fukushima, Japan. For those of you who don’t know what I’m referring to, just “Google (should I have used Bing in a Google article?) Fukushima March 2011”, and you’ll have plenty to read up on. The pictures are pretty insane, and it shows just how life literally just stopped; no one was allowed back in to clean up streets, close doors, etc. Hit the link below for all the photos, courtesy of Google Japan Blog.
