In a move that fulfills many childhood dreams, Google's latest offering lets you fly around the world like Superman.

Not content with Google Earth and Street View, Google has introduced the Google Earth VR, a fully immersive experience that lets you explore the world, wherever you are. "With Earth VR, you can fly over a city, stand at the top of the highest peaks, and even soar into space," said Mike Podwal, Product Manager of Google VR. "Earth VR comes with cinematic tours and hand-picked destinations that send you to the Amazon River, the Manhattan skyline, the Grand Canyon, the Swiss Alps, and more."

The Google Earth VR is now available on Steam for HTC Vive and will be launched on other platforms next year. Also, discover Google's first smartphone, Pixel.
