Floom is a WebXR experiment that helps anyone explore Earth from wherever they are.
Use an Android device with the latest version of Chrome, to open augmented reality tunnels to the other side of the globe.
You can control how your tunnel intersects the Earth, by changing the angle of your device, allowing you to explore different places from one location.
