Would you want to explore the world in virtual reality? You could see all the corners of the Earth without leaving your living room. Is that advancement, or does it cheapen real travel experiences? We’ll get to find out for ourselves, because Google Earth just took a huge leap forward with Google Earth VR.
It may be hard to believe, but Google Earth is 10 years old. Many have actually grown up exploring Google Earth, and can’t imagine a world without it. To others, Google Earth still seems like a brand-new resource. With a simple download, users could explore the world through a computer screen. But still, that screen was a barrier, even with over 2 billion downloads. Users couldn’t really pretend they were there. Enter: Virtual Reality.
