(Free Art & Technology) Lab replicated a Google Street View and published the DIY kit on “How to build a fake Google Street View Car” in 8 easy steps, from renting the correct car to buying the right materials (wooden boards, cardboards, glue), building the camera octagon with no camera inside and mounting the main pole to the base unit.
