Now enjoy a trip down memory lane:

Well, here it is, the current generation Google Maps Car. (A Subaru, judging by the Pleiades icon on the nose – for some reason, Google stripped the badges from the rear of these cars.) Are there cameras and SICK laser range finders and WiFi detectors and whatnot on top of this Subie? Who knows…

And here’s what these rides looked like before they got wrapped:

And this was the first generation Map Car, seen getting busted by the Federal popo in the Presidio.

(I’ve heard from four people who suppor contradictory stories (so that’s four people promoting two completely different tales) on why this particular Googler got busted, or not busted as the case may be. Oh well. Did the Presidio Trust tell the Google to get a permit? And did Google ignore that request? Don’t know.)

And the Google Bikes:

And the Google office:

And the Google Kitchen – it’s just like a 7-11 except shoplifting is encouraged:

And here’s the concomitant G-Toilet – it costs $700, it has over 20 buttons for its full operation, it’s made in Japan:

So that’s Google’s world.

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Tis the Season for Science at the California Academy of Sciences.

Check it:

“From November 23, 2011 – January 16, 2012 the Academy will offer a suite of wintry festivities and family fun that will celebrate the science behind some of our most familiar holiday sights, sounds, and traditions. Highlights include:

A pair of live reindeer

Indoor snow flurries twice an hour

A Snowman Theater – an immersive digital dome shaped like a giant snowman, which will play two new shows on the science of snow

An aromatic Spice Forest – displays of the raw botanical specimens from which we get cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and other holiday ingredients

Festive programs including quiz shows, live music, dance, and theater performances

Mounted specimens of the birds mentioned in “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” including swans, geese, colly birds, hens, doves, and a partridge in a pear tree.”

Remember RLGC – Reindeer Love Graham Crackers. Hey kids, name this reindeer! (She’s a girl, BTW.)

And here’s what these critters looked like when they were on the famous roof, via an iPhone 4:

This is Miles – he’s a fool for pine branches, I’ll tell you:

Les mise-en-scene:

One of four Evaporative Snow machines:

Le Theatre de Bonhomme de Neige – they’ve got two short films to show once you get inside:

The aromatic Spice Forest lets you smell stuff like nutmeg and vanilla:

And a partridge in a pear tree:

See you there!

It’s needs a little something more, though. How about a pair of antlers next year?
