You can still use Streets View in 3D!!

Way back in April 2010 I wrote about an option in Google Streets View that let you switch to an old school Complementary color anaglyph 3D image.  Sadly, that option disappeared not long after I discovered it.

I don’t know how long it’s been there, but I just noticed a new icon on the Google Streets View map – and it changes the view into an old school Complementary color anaglyph 3D image!!  Granted, this new feature isn’t terribly useful, but it is pretty cool.  Especially since I happen to have the right kind of glasses to make use of it. Click the image below to see one of Ottawa’s grubbier streets in all it’s 3D glory!
