Did you ever enjoy just cruising around and exploring the fictional cities of Liberty City and San Andreas on video-game series Grand Theft Auto?
Or maybe the mere thought of traveling somewhere new – even if you have GPS – puts you in a state of hot sweats?
Thanks to a Japan-based web developer, you can now simulate a real journey anywhere in the world.
Based on the satellite images pulled together by Google Maps, 2D Driving Simulator allows you to drive anywhere you want from the comfort of a bird's eye view.
By using your keyboard keys to accelerate, reverse, turn and even signal left or right, you can cruise around your hometown, revisit a beloved place you haven’t been in years or explore a part of the world you always wanted to see. You can even swap your car for a bus if you’re feeling adventurous.
While the DVLA is unlikely to allow you to take your driving test from your living room anytime soon, take a few minutes to discover the world in a whole new way.
