Is Google transcribing the world?

The other day I was writing a comment on blogger and instead of the expected recaptcha I found this:

Google using recaptcha for Street view

A photograph of text that I had to write down. To me, that looks like a picture from Google Street view instead of the regular Google books snippets.

With this Google could allow us to enter any text and search out on the streets where it's located O_O!

Update: Apparently this is old news :P
