International travel has its pitfalls, like the long lines in Rome, or the actual holes with spikes in them in Vietnam. Letting you tour the world from the safety of your bean bag chair: Tour Wrist.
A free iPhone/iPad app that affords beautifully interactive 360-views of some of the world's coolest sites, TW allows users to explore over 3,000 locales by toggling the screen between a finger drag mode, and a virtual-reality like "immersive mode" where shifting the device shifts the photo perspective via a "sensitive" compass, which's just sick and tired of people questioning its sextant-ality. Explore the global map, or search/browse tags (from "abbey" to "yacht") to find enticing destinations, starting with semi-local ones like the Golden Gate Bridge and Arches Natural Park in Utah, though if you're looking for Golden Arches, you should probably just walk outside. International spots range from awesomeness like an empty Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in South Africa, to an upward view of Malaysia's Petronas Twin Towers on a cloudy day, to absolute randomness like the interior of the Kostonay Diesel Plant in Kazakhstan, where ironically, Borat impressions are just coming into vogue.
Everything links up to Expedia, and they've got future plans to extend to non-Apple devices and develop software to allow any iPhone 4 user to capture images and create their own "AmaTours" -- also holes which you're better exploring from the safety of your bean bag chair.
