Google Streetview takes you inside an LHBS
« on: November 10, 2011, 09:10:46 PM »
On Chicago's North Side

I'd read that they were going to start doing this for businesses. Here's the full street address
3625 N Kedzie Ave  Chicago, IL 60618
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

That is f'ing cool man. I can almost imagine shopping virtual reality-wise like this.

As I wandered through the store I KNEW what it smelled like.  You can read the hop prices in the reach-in!

Very cool.

I bet Google's working on that as well.

also check out new advances in 3D mapping technologies by C3 Technologies. They were just recently purchased by Apple, so look for big improvements on iPhone mapping to come. we're really catching up with sci-fi, walking your avatar through the online LHBS and buying products probably is not far off. smelling the hops may be a bit farther out, but certainly conceivable. though aroma is pretty damn complex. meeting each other in a virtual pub and talking/seeing each other isn't that far off. tasting the beer? may take longer.
