I know I goofed again – it’s not Google Maps is Topeka Maps, just like Topeka Inc. CEO Eric Schmidt announced earlier today. The Topeka Maps team, using Street View, made a groundbreaking discovery today – they uncovered an extra dimension in our universe.

“This extra dimension can only be seen by using the cutting-edge red-cyan glasses shown below. Thanks to modern technology and remarkable advances in manufacturing, such state-of-the-art equipment is now available online for under a dollar,” explained Stéphane Lafon and Abhijit Ogale, Senior Pixel Movers, Street View.

Get your glasses, go to Topeka Maps and look for the Pegman an icon that looks like a dummy wearing the special glasses. Once you’ve found the Pegman icon, click it to see the secret dimension.



The Mountain View-based company has made another ground breaking discovery. Software developers at Topeka have uncovered that they can use Topeka Translate – I almost wrote Google Translate there – to speak to animals. Google Translate for Animals (probably did not have time to change it to Topeka Translate for Animals) has been released to the Android Market. The application provides support for 52 languages.


“This application allows you to record animal sounds and have the sounds analyzed and translated by Google Translate. With animal translation you can finally understand why Spot keeps peeing in your closet or why Pickles keeps leaving dead mice in the tub. No longer must humanity struggle to comprehend when Lassie warns, “Hurry, Timmy’s fallen down the well!” The technology isn’t perfect yet, so you may discover some translations that don’t make perfect sense. The algorithms are always improving however, thanks to the large corpus of cute cat videos that have been uploaded to YouTube,” explained Woof Woofington, Product Barketing Manager via Google Translate for Animals

You can see the app in action on YouTube here.
