I was browsing Google Earth. Happened to be hovering over New York. I was reminded of the 3D terrain viewing that was possible through Google Earth. I did so and went around New York's skyscrapers in 3D mode. Man, it was just amazing the way Google has rendered the buildings. It makes you feel as though you are physically present in the City of Sky Scrapers. One advantage though...I can be at Times Square one moment and fly across the landscape through some amazing buildings right over to Liberty island to view the Statue of Liberty in full glory within a span of few seconds.
My mind then raced to see what might be the implications of a 3D rendering of the entire planet. How about Google allowing you the possibility of extending your Google Earth account to create an avatar and roam about this virtual 3D replica of our planet. You can roam across the most inaccessible places of the planet without constraints or inconveniences. No worries about
- visas - You can tour US even if you are denied a tourist visa,
- hostile governments - North Korea and Cuba are no more mysterious places,
- affordability - Holidays in Switzerland can be with all your extended family members,
- seasonality - Visit Niagara falls come summer or winter
