With Google Street View offering up every inch of the country on your computer screen (even the High Line and Central Park), even the cubicle-bound can go on a little adventure... like this little guy. Tom Jenkins created a stop motion animation short that follows a "lonely desk toy" who leaves "the dark confines of the office" and takes a road trip, using a toy car and Google Maps Street View. The short starts off in NYC, and brings him all the way to the Pacific Coast... blink and you might miss R2D2 looking a little jealous.
