Touring The Guggenheim With Google 

My virtual world is continuing to take me on cultural trips. 

As many of you may know, the wonders of Google’s Street View technology, are now allowing us to virtually visit cultural institutions around the world. Just look at the Eiffel Tower in the above video.

Breaking news. According to tech site Engadget, Google is working with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in NYC. Google engineers used drones, tripod and “trolley” cameras to create a 360-degree view of the Guggenheim galleries.

Honestly, some of you may think this is another indication that we will never get away from our laptops and hand held devices. 

Au contraire. I think this will encourage us to see what’s going on behind the walls of some of the best museums, monuments, and cultural centers around the globe. A relaxing virtual tour can inspire us to see the real thing. I’m feeling energized already.
