Burj Kahlifa on Street View: The World's Tallest Building, Inside Out

The beauty of Google Street View is it can take you to places you might never otherwise see, and now it includes the crazy panoramic view from the top of Dubai's Burj Khalifa.

Of course the first skyscraper to be mapped on Google Street View would be the tallest in the world. Even from your computer screen, the view is breathtakingly awesome. You can check things out the view from Burj Khalifa's highest occupied floor (the 163rd).

You can also look down on Dubai from the 124th floor observation deck, or peer off an 80th floor window washing unit.

Google even shows you what it's like to ride in one of Burj's 22 mph elevators—the fastest-moving elevators in the world. So while most of us might never get a chance to see the mega-tall building in the flesh, seeing it from Google Street View is the next best thing. [Google]

So rad. I wonder if they'll ever find someone gutsy enough (or make a rig small/light enough) to do a Street View of the whole climb up Mount Everest.
