Enabling couch potatoes everywhere to say they’re still “world travelers”, Paul Wex’s mashup of Nokia 3D Maps footage provides oh-so-realistic shots of beautiful cities across the world. Originally stymied by a sub-par (a.k.a. not ridiculously good) graphics card, Wex upgraded, then shot helicopter-esque scenes of New York, Toronto, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Boston, London, Vienna, Berlin, Sydney and Melbourne skylines. Soaring electronica music (also crafted by Wex) adds to the already grand scale of things. After all that tough sightseeing, you may need to take a break to browse the internet.
