Google’s Cultural Institute is providing their Art Camera to museums around the globe. The camera brings the gigapixel zoomability of the Google Earth experience to paintings and drawings. The detail of brushstrokes is amazing…better than sticking your nose up close and having a guard tap you on the shoulder. Plus, you can hop from museum to museum with just a few clicks.
Check the Art Camera out here on Mashable.
