Google Earth in VR - simply awsome
« on: November 19, 2016, 06:32:19 am »

Even with the Rift (which work only due to a hack atm and isn't fully controllable without touch), it's absolutely mind blowing to look on a kind of model railway world with insane, meticulous detail down to a few centimeters (e. g. LA or SF area). All derived from photogrammetry data. A true vr killer app! Rift and Vive oners: Try it on steam.

A little annoyed I guess that they haven't cleaned up the select areas in the normal Google Earth Pro program.... as far as I can tell.
