Flickr Bikes: Picture Assignments by Users for Users

So picture this, you are out on a purple bike and as soon as you start riding it, the camera phone mounted to your handlebars snaps a picture every 60 seconds. Stop moving for more than three minutes and the camera goes into sleep mode. Cool concept? Why bother? Well Google has their street view vans, now Flickr and Yahoo! have their photo bikes.

Since each bike has it's own Flickr account, all the pictures are uploaded automatically after they are taken. You don't even have to get off the bike. The built in solar panel keeps the camera phone juiced so you can bike and shoot for as long as the weather stays bright out. We'll keep our eyes on this one. Should make for some interesting photo series.
