If you’ve been fantasising about being in The LEGO Movie, then look no further – a Swedish coder has hacked a LEGO-inspired layer over Google Street View.
Einar Öberg’s creation, dubbed ‘Brick Street View’, offers an alternative spin on Google Maps, with a LEGO figure ready to help you explore the pixellated world.
Öberg has form with transforming Google Street View – his ‘Urban Jungle Street View’ lets users navigate an overgrown post-apocalyptic world.
Both the Brick and Urban Jungle versions are playful alternatives to the normal Google Street View and add a lovely sense of fun to the software.
Take a look around ‘Brick Street View’ here and tell us what you think of it.
