Last week we were invited to a party Google was throwing for those involved in the recent Grow Local campaign which was designed to help businesses get on board with Google AdWords.

Hold the device and look in any direction and control your movements inside the virtual world. Ride on virtual rollercoasters, view museum exhibits, walk around stately homes, fly over Chicago or get immersed in a Paul McCartney concert (if that’s your thing…).
