Inspiration

We started out with the lofty goal of creating a multiplayer Where's Waldo game using the Google Street View API, which we quickly scrapped once we realized just how bad our programming skills were.

What it does

You must find Carl Wheezer on Google Maps. He spawns in a random area within a certain radius of the center of Isla Vista, and you start at the edge. Once you get within a certain radius of Carl on the Google Street View interface, you win!

How we built it

We used Google Maps and Google Street Views API.

Challenges we ran into

Grabbing Google panorama data and modifying the image to place Carl in it.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Finishing the game!

What we learned

Hacking is temporary but memes are forever

What's next for Where's Wheezer

Hopefully nothing
