Maps News: Google has announced plans to add an endoscopic view of users to its popular maps service, letting millions of people around the world get a good eyeful of your guts.
Google hopes the new internal mapping technologies will reassert its position as a market leader, particularly when people can see the inside of other users colons in striking high definition.
“Google Maps opened up the world to our users,” said Brian McClendon, vice president of engineering for Google Maps. “And this new endoscopic view will open up our 300 million users to the world.”
McClendon confirmed that highly trained teams of medical photographers will be dispatched around the world in the next few weeks, using a specially designed endoscope to photograph every inch of all Google users insides.
“The teams will take pictures at night, when you’re asleep,” said McClendon. “It’s much more convenient for our users that way and not at all sinister. You won’t even know we’ve been inside you.”
