As a part of Google's never-ending quest to photograph the entire world from cameras mounted on the tops of cars, the Internet giant has added Switzerland to the list of countries covered by Street View. According to this article, Google has hired some 300 new drivers for this project, although the company doesn't have any vehicles for them to drive yet. Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, seems to have wanted to bolster Google's green-cred by using the Toyota Prius for the operation, but engineers could not find a suitable way to attach the cameras to the roof of the hybrid.

We have a suggestion: add a roof rack to the Prius and go from there.
