Google Street View has recently expanded into the Middle East, and brought images of several of Egypt's most iconic and ancient landmarks online. To do so, the Google team couldn't rely on the usual Google Street View cars. Instead, they used the Trekker, a wearable backpack with a built-in camera system.

Joyce Baz, Google's communications manager for Middle East North Africa, told Znet that the backpack is "a little over a metre in height when set on the ground and when worn, the camera system extends above the operator's shoulders.
