A website has launched called Urban Jungle Street View. The Street View hack allows you to navigate through the world's cities as if it's been left to decay and become a post-apocalyptic wilderness. Creator Einar Oberg said on Twitter that he's "breaking the terms of use like it's no tomorrow", as you're technically not meant to use the Google Maps API for exploratory trickery like this. 

Anyway, we all know the world's gonna end pretty soon, right? Well why wait to see what that looks like? Plus, you might not even be around. Visit Urban Jungle Street View here to walk around an overgrown metropolis and be quick, Google might take it down pretty soon.
