Amazing 360 Degree Video Tours

Sometimes you come across something on the Internet that just makes your jaw drop in amazement. We have been embedding movies on Google Maps for over eighteen months but thanks to Google Maps Mania and Digital Urban we have just discovered something even more amazing.

The sites below have not just embedded any old films on a map but have embedded films in which you can control the camera. Both sites show a film of a drive in which you can turn the camera 360 degrees at all times, so you control what you see.

OK it is a bit hard to explain so go visit the sites and wait for your jaw to hit the floor.
