Cool thing to check out of the day

Google Maps has introduced 3D photo tours of famous places. It’s a little different from Street View because it takes a series of photos and composites them into a moving, transforming view so you can just sit there and enjoy a brief visit Manneken Pis or Buckingham Palace from the comfort of your own home.

 

Here are Google’s favorite tours (after you click one, it’ll ask you to enable WebGL – do it, it’s no biggie). You can also go here for all of the tours (click “take a photo tour” on the bottom right of the picture of the place you want to see).
