Send your eyes and ears on holiday with a 3D soundscape in Google Maps

If you feel like heading to Hawaii today, you’re in luck. An experimental platform adds sound to Google Maps, so that you can explore locations online in a multi-sensory way. Just enter the Sounds of Street View website to listen to waves lapping the shore and happy holidaymakers on Hapuna Beach, Hawaii.

If a city square is more your style, you can switch locations to Place du Palais, France or chill out in Balboa Park, San Diego.

Sounds of Street View was created by Amplifon, a company that creates products that help people to regain the sense of hearing.
