Caption: Google engineer Daniel Ratner, riding the Google Street View Trike in Mountain View, CA, on March 17, 2011. Ratner is the inventor of the trike, a three-wheeled pedicab with a 360 degree multiple camera system mounted on a 7-foot pole that records photographic images automatically. The photographs are later processed and used by the Google Maps application. The trike can go where the regular Google Street View Car cannot, like park trails, walkways and some of very narrow streets in Europe.
