Google Cardboard takes you 'Inside Abbey Road'

Grab a headset and take a peek.


Almost a year ago Google launched "Inside Abbey Road," a special site containing an interactive tour of the legendary recording studio in London. Today, the company is back with an Android app that repackages the experience for Google Cardboard. Instead of clicking around in the browser, you can slide your phone into a compatible headset and peek around naturally. It's mostly the same content, combining detailed Street View imagery, 360-degree video and some audio narration by Giles Martin, the son of record producer and "fifth Beatle" Sir George Martin.

The original site was put stitched together using 150 different 360-degree panoramas. It covers studio one, two and three, as well as a smaller mastering room nestled in the building. Once you're done with Martin's tour you can move the reticule in the center of the screen to view photos, videos and factual snippets in each room. If you own a Cardboard it's definitely worth checking out, especially if you're a fan of the "Fab Four."
