(H/T Never Not Working)
I especially like how they’re using Google maps to help people figure out how much sun they can expect on their roofs.

As always there is a lot of good stuff in Cannes. I’m not gonna post Grand Prixs, because every one has seen those (I assume..). But here are three other winners that I really like.
It may seem a little flat, but what makes it a winner to me is the flawless design and what seems like a very smooth flow. A very nice experience – and educational!
The new creatives
This just looks too fucking cool. That’s it. (This is not the Cannes case, but still a nice video – check out the Cannes video here)
Racer – A Google Chrome experiment
I’ll include this because I love Google Chrome experiments. And it looks like fun.
You gotta love Google! As part of their “general” Art Project they’ve created the Street Art Project to preserve art that often disappears (through decay, cleaning etc.). The project has around 100 exhibitions and 5000+ images, and includes maps, videos and much more.
Could be a massive gamechanger on the car market! Luckily (for the competitors) the design is not that appealing…
I gotta say I’m a big fan of Google Streetview. Especially when they do things like mapping a small deserted island. It’s that Japanese one that was the worlds most densely populated area, but now is the loneliest place on earth (-ish). Bonus info: it was used in Skyfall. Very cool project.
