Google’s ‘Journey Through Middle-Earth’ Chrome Experiment Lets Users Explore Locations From ‘The Hobbit’

With Journey Through Middle-Earth, Google’s latest Chrome Experiment, you can explore fantastical locations from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit film trilogy. You can select specific locations like Dol Guldur, Rivendell, or the Trollshaw forest from a map of Middle-earth. Then, you can learn about the location’s history and explore the area in first-person view. The interactive journey works in Chrome on laptops, smartphones, and tablets, and Google says it will be adding more locations in the coming weeks. Check it out for yourself here. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on December 13th, 2013.
