Wow! This is cool.
For those of you who know me, you've heard me rave about my experiences with virtual reality since I bought an HTC Vive a few months ago. I think it's the best experience on the market and it just keeps getting better and better.
Today was the best. Google released an app for Google Earth VR and it is mind blowing. Tonight, I was sitting in the middle of my living room but it felt like I was flying all over the world including Paris, New York City, San Francisco, and perhaps weirdest of all for me, directly in front of my childhood home.
I floated all around Niagra Falls, the great pyramids in Egypt, and Devil's Tower in Wyoming. It was very surreal and I stayed up an hour past my bed time enjoying it. If you haven't experienced the HTC Vive yet, make arrangements to do so and check this out. You will be amazed!
