Microsoft Street Slide: Like Google Street View, only better

Microsoft research does great work (Photosynth, Courier, Surface, ...), it’s a shame that it so rarely contributes to actual products. “Microsoft Street Slide” (MSS) fixes a problem that Google Street View has: While you can move around in your virtual surroundings, it is difficult to get a sense of context (“what is around me?”, “where am I?”). MSS helps by allowing one to zoom out and get a look at a whole street.
