The Google Art Project: Museums virtual visits redefined !!!

Google managed (...once again) to impress us by using its Street View technology into a new context: Museums. The new platform, called Google Art Project, redefines the "Museums Virtual Visit" experience setting new standards for further developers: Easy to use intuitive navigation using features from Google Maps and Google Earth, seamless transition and flow, but more than that: 3D mode (mouse right click - put on your glasses and go!!!), incredible zoom - at least in one per museum painting (gigapixel shot enabling access to microscopic details), and of course sharing features via social media platforms and ability so that users create their own collections.
However, for the other side of the coin read Alastair Sooke's opinion at The Telegraph.
What are your ideas about the new platform implications for leisure travel?
