Want to go anywhere on Earth without leaving your couch? Google has just unveiled a new way to travel around the world: using Google Earth in virtual reality.
You can wander the streets of Hong Kong, New York or Paris and many more. And since it's Google Earth you won't see a boring 3D rendered virtual environment but physical world in real 3D.
A new awesome option is available as well: fly. Yes, now you can fly like Superman zigzagging between skyscrapers. Google says you likely won't experience any VR sickness, but your milage may vary! Oh and did we mention all of this is completely free? It is first available on the HTC VIVE through the Steam Store, and we expect to see a Daydream version pretty soon.
