Google Street View + Treadmill (made easy)

I've seen quite a few posts lately around hooking Google Street View up to exercise equipment of some sort.  Most tend to use sensors to detect a passing rotation.  I love the idea, but not enough to spend the time or money necessary to make it a reality.  So I improvised.

What you need:

  • Treadmill
  • TV, projector, or mounted display (maybe next time)
  • a Stealth Switch (actually, any momentary button would work....middle button on a mouse for instance)
  • a long usb cable (probably)
  • Autohotkey
  • Google Street View
