A Road Trip Around Our Tiny Planet via Stereographic Google Street View

The music video for A Ghost Train's "Chemin Vert" zips across five continents at roughly 1,000 mph. 

The music video for A Ghost Train's "Chemin Vert," by Giacomo Miceli, zips across five continents at roughly 1,000 mph. Miceli, a self-described creative coder, computer scientist, and "entreprenerd" explains, "the whole concept is the visualization of one of my childhood fantasies, riding a rocket launched at full speed just above the ground of a long road." A high-definition, interactive version is available here
