Camel cam

Google has enlisted the help of a 10-year-old dromedary camel to capture video and still images of the Liwa Desert in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, as part of their worldwide mapping mission. Wearing one of the company’s Trekker cameras like a Crittercam, "Raffia" is being led through the sand (VIDEO HERE). Joyce Baz, Google’s spokesperson in the Middle East and North Africa, points out, "With every environment and every location, we try to customize the capture and how we do it for that part of the environment. In the case of Liwa we fashioned it [in such a way that the camera] goes on a camel so that it can capture imagery in the best, most authentic and least damaging way.”
