Ever wanted to take in the Christmas windows of Manhattan, but couldn’t quite deal with the crowds or air fare? Well, this season Google captured high-resolution images of 18 prominent retailers to digitally reconstruct the sights and sounds of New York.
From Bloomingdale’s chandeliers, to a confectionery-themed Nutcracker Sweet display at Saks Fifth Avenue, the Window Wonderland could be enjoyed as a 360-degree on-screen image or through a VR headset.
While you couldn’t buy anything, the platform did include links to each retailer’s website. We can see the potential in this kind of window-shopping.
