I had heard of a project from Google that would bring Internet to the masses (IE the 80% of people on the globe still unavailable to get a decent (if any) internet connection), but no detail had really filtered out: Basically, project Loon is based on an army of balloons floating in the stratosphere, interconnected as a network, floating west-to-east across the globe, bringing the Internet to formerly secluded parts of the world.
This project is truly amazing on so many levels and a perfect demo of what Google's "Moonshots" are: - This project is pure innovation, while maintaining very close to "nature" and the way people without access to the internet can access it without actually changing their traditions. - It is pretty smart (on its own) but also in terms of business strategy for Google: Imagine the strength of being THE company that brought the internet to so many people. - It may actually help a lot of people achieve things they could not have imagined possible just a few years back (or even just today): Education, Healthcare, Business, etc.
I love how such projects can be so clearly business-oriented while at the same time bringing so much (potentially) to people.

I don't have a "favourite room" really… so I just went with one I find visually interesting: The lift. What I like here is how you feel like this might be taken from inside the elevator when really it is just a reflection. The result is not as I expected but… oh well.
If you want to randomly travel around the world from your sit while playing a bit this weekend, give GeoGuessr a try! It is a google-maps-based game asking you to guess locations based on Street view images. I was lucky enough to get 19640 points thanks to a lucky guess in South Korea (24km away from the actual location ).
