According to the Mountain View-based internet firm, Google Corp., its new Google Earth Virtual Reality (VR) feature allows users to visit any address in the world with its 3D headset system. With Earth VR, you can fly over a city, stand at the top of the highest peaks, and even soar into space.
Using a new updated feature on Google Earth VR, people choose their own destinations, as long as they know the address or name of the(ir) location and then you’ll be able to visit it with a 3D headset system.
“People want to quickly find and revisit the places that mean the most to them, whether it is a childhood home or favourite vacation spot,” Joanna Kim, a Product Manager at Google Earth VR said in a blog post.
Sightseers can also visit 27 handpicked locations that are now available on Google Earth VR, including Neuschwanstein Castle that inspired the castle in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, Table Mountain in South Africa and the Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina.
“When we first launched Google Earth VR last year in November, we knew there was something powerful about being able to point anywhere in the world and start flying. You could soar over landscapes and cities, and discover locations you did not even know existed” Kim said in a press statement.
