Google Takes Street View To Burj Khalifa

Takes images using a camera mounted on a backpack from the building's 80th floor.


After scaling the mountainous regions of Everest and Kilimanjaro, Google took its Street View to the first city in the Middle East; Dubai. Experimenting with a new back-mounted camera, called the Trekker, Google's team has captured some amazing panoramic shots of the city, from the Burj Khalifa. This is currently the world's tallest building, towering at 2,716 feet. The entire recce of the building took the Google Street View team three days. While you can see the final product here, check out the official making-of video below:
