Walk Through the World’s Greatest Art Galleries Via the Internet

8 February, 2011

From the brilliantly clever people at Google, we now have the Google Art Project.

With the help of a web browser and the Google Earth interface they developed for navigating maps at the street level, they’ve developed a wonderful system for navigating some of the world’s greatest art galleries. You can walk the halls, or stop and zoom in on a painting. With some famous images, more information is provided, and you can zoom in for great detail.

Here’s a thought– could this be designed into a shopping experience?
