Take a Gander at the Awesome Street View From the Top of the World's Tallest Building

By Sam Gibbs on at

Google's taken its Street View gear to the top of the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest man-made structure in Dubai, nicknamed the vertical city. Needless to say, the vista is amazing. Check out this insane view.

The building is 828m tall, towering over the Dubai skyline like something from a sci-fi film, or Mission Impossible. In fact, when there's cloud cover, the top of it actually pokes through, like a building straight out of Cloud City.

This is the first Street View captured from the top of a skyscraper, and while it's not quite gigapixel-amazing, it's still pretty breathtaking on a drab Monday afternoon. [Google]
