Google Puts Camera On Camel’s Back For Street View Of Desert (Video)

Google Maps and Google Earth have both come a long way from where they originally started.

At first, we were all blown away by just being able to locate our homes using satellite images from Google Maps.

We were shocked when we realized there was such a thing as Google Street View, which essentially lets users roam the streets of the world.

Now, in 2014, we’re able to tour the Arabian Desert using this technology. That’s right, Google literally strapped a camera to a camel’s back and captured the sights of the Liwa Desert.

It all started out with a 10-year-old camel and a tour guide. Millions of people are now able to experience the desert right from the comfort of their own office chairs and living room sofas.

Check out the video above for a closer look!
