Google just announced YouTube VR last week. This makes me think about how Google Earth might evolve, to become (or perhaps power) Second Life-like experiences with real-world locations and data.

@rrhoover Unfortunately the resolution's not good enough to have social experiences in actual locations - they disable full scale mode by default because it usually looks like a jumbled mesh/mess at full scale :( Someday hopefully soon though!

The fact that this isn't on Daydream VR irks me.

The evolution of Google Earth both freaks me out and makes me more excited at the same time !

This is getting cooler and cooler. Why move our bodies when we can just move our minds.

Wow, I've just tried it. It's crazy how detailed it is. Feels like SimCity VR. Quite surprised there's no Search option in a Google app.
