Explore the world from your armchair

TWO internet giants have embarked on a race to become the first 3-D cartographers of the world. The result is expected to be an online map that allows web surfers to land in a city from the sky, walk its streets and navigate its hotels, shops and attractions without ever having to visit in person.

Further bad news for the airlines!!!!

Amazingly: "As the rival schemes develop, buildings will become interactive, enabling users to “enter” them, obtain information, buy goods inside and talk to other “visitors”."

Just imagine how this will work when combined with high resolution 3D virtual reality headsets.
