Today Google has released new images on Google Maps of the Amazonian rainforest , so if you fancy a trek through the Amazon rainforest you can from the comfort of your own home , if nothing else it's something to show the grandkids when the original has gone.

Google has flown one of its Street View cameras down a zip wire for the first time.
It set up a wire in the Amazon rainforest to capture new 360-degree images of the trees from root to tip.
The photography project is a collaboration with the Amazonas Sustainable Foundation (FAS).
"Most people won't go to a rainforest in their lifetimes," said Google spokesperson Laurian Clemence.
"We also hope environmentalists will use it as a tool to go and see what's there."

They suspended it from a zip line , their ingenuity knows no bounds.

Looks like the zipline snapped by the state of the front end.

My friends and I came across the google car last summer on the highway heading to Regina SK, Canada. We thought it was the coolest thing ever, but then again not much happens in the middle of nowhere..lol
