The Google Art Project launched this week and it's definitely addictive.
Google has come up with the next best thing to visiting the world's greatest museums - high-definition virtual art tours that use powerful cameras to zoom into some of the most famous masterpieces in history.You really must try it out for yourself. Visit www.googleartproject.com
The Google Art Project was announced Tuesday and uses technology adapted from the company's Street View feature to allow web browsers to wander the halls of 17 leading museums around the world.
The most prominent works on show, numbering about 1,000 in all, can be viewed in ultra-high definition, allowing users to zoom in to see the smallest of brush strokes and cracks in the canvas. Each picture is accompanied by explanatory text. (via)
