Panoramic Street View Paintings

If you've ever wanted to step inside a painting and explore a landscape from the inside then you are in for a treat. Mobile Cyclorama is an amazing project which allows you to view paintings using Google Maps Street View technology.

Raúl Moya Do's Street View paintings have for a long time been my favorite use of the Custom Street View option from the Google Maps API. He has now taken this technology to a whole new level with the option to view his paintings with Google Cardboard.

Google Cardboard is a very cheap way to make or buy your very own virtual reality headset. Once you have your Google Cardboard VR player you can now step inside the wonderful Mobile Cyclorama 360 degree immersive paintings.

If you don't have Google Cardboard don't worry. You can still view all of the Mobile Cyclorama paintings on your desktop, using the Street View option on each landscape.
