Google Maps Faces @ onformative

Hey guys this is a project Cedric Kiefer and myself worked on at onformative…i think it is kinda nice in a weird way: We build a bot that scrolls across google maps and continously searches for faces. In order to to do so we used ofxBerkelium to navigate to a virtual browser and a website hosting Google Maps. Architecture wise it was kinda tricky to send commands to Java Script … and receiving and operating on Position Coordinates in Open Frameworks. However the bot just walks and we enjoy watching him - propably walking forever…since data gets crazy the deeper we go in zoom level.
