This web app turns Google Streetview into cyberpunk art

I know what you’re thinking. Google Maps Streetview would look so much cooler if your city was rendered all cyberpunk-y in 3D point cloud graphics. Well, this interactive web app by Callum Prentice does just that, turning any boring sidewalk scene into neon-colored polygons against grimy black night. But what’s point cloud, you ask? The technology is, er, a set of data points in a coordinate system. It gets a little complicated, but you can imagine pointillism for polygons and not be far off. As for the web app, its much better than Streetview and all that facticity about knowing where you’re at.

You can try it for yourself here.
