So I'm sure most of you will have heard of Mr Malcolm's fantastic business creating panoramic photographs of York - http://www.panoramicyork.co.uk
Well since I spent the last few days learning how to program in a whole new language called Extensible 3D (kinda like XML or HTML but for virtual reality applications) I thought I'd test my skills by building a virtual gallery for his photographs.
If you want a look you'll need to download Flux Player (IE/Firefox plugin) from http://www.mediamachines.com/
Then go to http://www.panoramicyork.co.uk/vr
The best way to navigate is to use the viewpoints box in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen (it should say 'Home' to start with and have arrows at either side)
Now what's the scope for creating a 3D forum...
Enjoy!

That is awesome!

Just one small flaw - the viewpoints seem to be in reverse order - i.e. if I navigate to the right, I turn to the left.
(Edit: it makes sense at the signpost, it's just when you get to navigating around the ring)

So are you going to be working with VR then? Sounds like fun

Ah yes you're right. Sorted now

VR is just a lot of fun to design - very good return for your effort. I'm not working on animation - making the moon and stars rotate and doing a few interactive buttons and stuff.

Thought this might be of interest for the Panorama fans out there.
