Google Maps - Street View

Yesterday, whilst looking for some directions on Google Maps, I came across this amazing feature called Street View, which gives a street level view of things from a driver's perspective.

To use Street View, you need to drag the icon of a man just above the zoom slider onto a street of your interest. It covers most cities in the UK and probably the world. The amount of detail available is just mind blowing. This feature strikes me as just a step away from real life virtual driving, where one could drive around major cities from the comfort of their seats. Hats off to Google....
