"The Louvre is dusting off its treasures, even the least-known," said Jean-Luc Martinez, President-Director of the Musée du Louvre, in a statement on Friday. "For the first time, anyone can access the entire collection of works from a computer or smartphone for free, whether they are on display in the museum, on loan, even long-term, or in storage.

Soon everything will be virtual. Why take a trip to the Grand Canyon when you can put on some goggles and fly over it while sitting in your living room.

It will be great for us baby boomers, hopefully all the assisted living places will have them. We will be able to go somewhere different everyday.

Wow, I could see a lot of benefits for companies in this format....

Nursing homes, rehab facilities, assisted living, cancer patients, children with mental issues.....

The virtual stuff could be huge a decade from now, especially considering young people and what they might use it for....

Something to look forward to, in old age. And a huge business opportunity.
