THE VATICAN


This is really something worth looking at. The technology involved is remarkable.
As the instructions say, you can move around the areas with your mouse, moving left or right and up or down.
You can also zoom in and out by clicking on the small plus and minus signs in the lower left side of the picture(s).
That aspect is not mentioned in the instructions. The clarity of the pictures remains surprisingly clear as you zoom in and you can pick out particular items to look at closely

INSTRUCTIONS: After you link on the site below and select an image and it appears, then HOLD DOWN THE LEFT MOUSE BUTTON AND SLOWLY MOVE THE CURSOR AROUND THE ROOM

The most awesome thing I have ever seen on the net.
The Vatican virtual tours. Being able to zoom in on the art work is really something.

Thanks Harry!
Do you think you and Bob3 could use this technology for your already superb tutorials and build pics?

Some of this technology is getting scary. Try going to Google Maps, type in you own home address. Zoom in on the map and look for any streets that are highlighted/outlined. Drag the little man from the zoom bar down to one of the highlighted streets for a photographic street view.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

That is amazing! For someone like me who will probably never see the Vatican in person it sure is a much better experience then just looking at 2D pictures.

At age 77 Gene, there isn't time for me to learn such technology but perhaps young Bj will give it a go!

Google street view John, when Marlene isn't selling "surplus" household items on Gum Tree, or buying things on e-bay, she can be found on Google street view, that is of course in between looking after me and our home. I've seen the homes of many of my forum friends!

Fortunately, the street view of my place is so over-exposed, you can't even tell there's a house there, let alone the wall and the concertina wire. I hate spending any more time up in the tower behind the .50 cal than I have to.
