Google Earth Takes You On a Dramatic 3D Tour Of New York City [VIDEO]

Have you ever played with Google Earth?  It is a bizarre, surreal experience, to be sure.  Well, this is the “surreal-ist” of all!

Have you ever seen the Google car?  It actually came around our neighborhood once.  It had that 360 degree camera on the roof.  Very cool.

Well I guess they made a trip around Manhattan and put this up on Google. It says that it’s in 3D.  I don’t get that.  It looks very flat to me.  However, I thought I heard something about YouTube putting up 3D videos in the future, so maybe this is a tease.  Anyway, check this out.

If you want more information about how they did this, you can check out this Google blog.

(Isn’t it great to “drive” down the streets of New York without actually experiencing the traffic problem?)
