Inspiring video on El Capitan, which is now available on Street View.... would have liked a little more tech detail on how they took the 360' images though.

Insteresting; 'Google Tone' - high frequency audio data transfer of URLs (and the like?).
Maybe some problems on the receiving end, such as have the computer always listening and as no software is bug free it also opens up another attack surface. I look forward to people fuzzing the data stream...

The main stumbling block is that the accel/gyro setup on most phones won’t hack it for good orientation tracking and that doesn’t even start to approach positional tracking. I wonder whether a ‘tracker’ peripheral could be plugged in to provide these functions to the any phone.
This recent hackaday competion entry might make a very good start (although it’s currently lacking the gyros its the same micro as the Oculus tracker board), and to make it super user(/hacker) friendly it’s running micro-python coupled with OpenCV.
