Very few people are allowed inside one of Google’s data centers, but you can at least take a virtual tour thanks to a 360° video. We should warn that the narration is basically just one extended plug for the company’s technology, but it’s fun to take a look around.

The 360° view is available on both mobile and desktop platforms …

Google recommends Cardboard for the full benefit, but it also works in the YouTube app on most of today’s Android devices, as well as in the desktop version of the Chrome browser. The Google Store started selling Cardboard and other VR viewers last month.

The company notes that 360° videos are not yet supported in the iOS version of the YouTube app, but that support is ‘coming soon.’
