I am in LOVE with the Google Art Project

Wow. This is incredible. I was almost speechless when a coworker showed me this today. Some Google employees took their 20% time (the time Google lets it's employees work on personal projects) and came up with a way for everyone to be able to visit museums around the world. Using the "street view" technology and what they are calling “gigapixel photo-capturing technology", Google has made it so anyone can walk through these world famous museums and zoom in on some of the paintings.

Great job, Google. I am almost speechless.

Check it out!
