Google Street View Debuts Underwater


It's the procrastination enabler you never thought you needed! This week, Google premiered Street View Oceans, which can take viewers on a 360-degree virtual tour of six undersea locations, including Australia's Great Barrier Reef and the Molokini Crater off Maui. The images collected for the project are actually intended for scientific purposes, to create a visual record of the ocean. But that original purpose isn't stopping anyone from using it just to take a virtual vacation.
