A Journey Through Middle Earth

Take A Journey Through Middle Earth With Google Chrome

Posted on November 27, 2013 · Posted in Inspiration, Websites

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was one of my favourite movies of 2012 and with the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug just around the corner, Google thought they’d do something a little bit special by allowing you to visit Middle Earth.

Journey Through Middle Earth is Google’s latest Chrome experiment and allows the user to travel through iconic spots in Middle Earth. You can select specific locations from a map of Middle-earth, which will then explain the location’s history.

You’re able to explore the area in first-person view, with the website working in Chrome on laptops, smartphones, and tablets. Google have also said that they will be adding more locations in the coming weeks ahead of the release of the new movie.
