Soooo cool. I want to play this game with VR headsets and maybe fans and smell generators.

I got 9,000 with my brain and 23,000 with the Google.

this is completely amazing!

I got 18657 with my brain. I got really lucky, with three of the locations in Britain, France, and Mexico, which were relatively easy. I got one within 20 metres, which was a thrill.

Wow... I'm at ~4000. Didn't know how many of the world's street signs look like the ones in the US.

What did you guys use as your criteria to guess? I was basing a lot of my guesses on the type of trees which usually put me in the correct region most of the time, except for when it was a dessert and I assumed it was Africa when it was actually Australia...

After guessing the region based on the trees I would look for street signs and mailboxes to confirm.

that's fun! i got lucky with three out of five guesses and got 7069 on my first attempt. I mostly looked at trees, road type, types of transportation, brands of cars, signage when possible.

I was looking at words/signage (if any), left-or-right driving, license plate shape, car brands, and then vegetation.

what if they did this with just sound? YANNN?

Man, a sound one would be brilliant, and insanely difficult.

I was talking with some folks yesterday about making a Google Streetcar style thing for sound. In particular we were talking about doing impulse responses in crazy places, which would require a speaker as well as a stereo microphone setup, which would make for a pretty funny hat.

the only trick is how you sell ads around the sound version of street view (street sound?)... Maybe for people that are curious for how noisy a neighbor hood is?

I would pay good money to pre smell (through the internet) apartments that I am going to check out. Would save me so much time rejecting places on the basis of mildew and smoke.

I think this game would benefit also from a two-player time-limited version. jon, when we get back from lunch we should prototype this.

you only get to smell each other for 30 seconds? oh... do you mean the geoguessr game?
