If you're looking for something to do with your newly-purchased (or months-old) HTC Vive, you may want to consider exploring our entire planet.

Google has released a Google Earth VR app on Steam, for free. The app uses Google's image data of Earth to let you fly around the planet or walk at ground level, allowing you to virtually travel to the pyramids of Egypt or fact-check whether the K Mart near the Subway you remember going to years ago is still there.

You can download the app, which requires the Vive in order to use, on its official Steam page. You can watch a trailer for the app below.
