Introducing Hot Air Balloon View

It has been my practice to call Google Business Photos 'indoor Street View'. Google Business Photos never really seemed as accurate as 'indoor Street View' to me - but boy was I wrong.

I was wrong because Google Business Photos do not actually have to be taken indoors. In fact, as these Street View shots from the Turin Eye prove, they can actually be taken from 150 metres above the ground. Thanks to the owners of the Turin Eye you can now virtually ascend to the skies above Turin on Google Maps, walk around inside the hot air balloon and get a 360 degree panoramic aerial view of Turin.

Now that's what I call a business photo!
