Google Maps' Street View is soon going to give us a glimpse of inside the shops and businesses that as of now we've only been able to see the outside of when strolling down the street on Google Maps.

"Google Business Photos are essentially interior Street View shots, allowing you to get a 360-degree view of a store or restaurant. Google has been photographing businesses since last year, but they're just now putting the results online. Businesses from Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Washington, D.C. are included, and it'll presumably grow from there." Adam Frucci,

Things like this just prove how exciting technology is. Who knows, soon we'll be able to check out our favourite stores on the British high street before we actually visit them. Maybe one day we'll be able to walk around a store from our own homes picking things off shelves that take our fancy, a slightly more real online shopping experience.
