The world's tallest building

Video of the Week #98, June 27th, 2013: From: STEM Makes Cars Safer, Buildings Taller, Enables Hearing and Moves Giant Magnets! by Joanne Manaster at PsiVid. Source: Google Maps on YouTube. Google Street View created a video demonstrating how they have been working to document the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world's tallest building at 828 meters (2,716 feet), inside and out. A visit to the spire at the top is quite phenomenal. The Burj Khalifa is an architectural and engineering marvel and the new Trekker camera device is quite nifty, too.
