Is This the Ultimate Staycation?

While time travel is not yet a reality, virtual travel may be. There’s a new camera that is providing 360-degree images that can make vacationing at your desk or during lunch time a reality. 

Huffington Post’s associate lifestyle editor, Suzy Strutner, writes that these photos were captured with technology that allows viewers to toggle around the screen for panoramic views that feel similar to looking through virtual reality goggles. 

You can literally go around the world on your lunch break. 

For example, swim with dolphins.
