SeaView Offers a Underwater Street View

You've probably spent more than a couple of minutes travelling through the streets of cities around the world through Google Street View eyes. But what if you weren't restricted to streets, or even the surface of our planet? What if you could dive beneath the oceans' surface and have a peek at amazing views of Australia's Great Barrier Reef?

Well, now you can thanks to this SeaView project. A project that uses a underwater scooter equipped with 360º panoramic cameras that allow us to "be there" even when comfortable sitting on our sofa halfway around the world.

I can even imagine that someday, in the not so distant future, we might even get the chance to have robotic underwater scooters that we can remotely control and give us real-time views of underwater landscapes. :)
