"This is real-time streaming technology. It's like (the online directory) MapQuest or the navigation system in your car, but three-dimensional. You'll see a globe, like a virtual Earth, and then you can fly in from outer space and zoom all the way in to a city and even to street level, which will be updated by very nice, high-resolution imagery."
SAME works by taking satellite images of the Earth and combining them with real-time remote sensors that monitor traffic and weather. Apparently, the resolution is 60 cm, which is good enough to determine what model a car is, but falls short of showing the details of a human face, sadly. The technology has raised concerns among lawyers specialising in privacy issues, who believe it could be used to invade people's privacy or to stalk people.
