Modern technologies give us amazing opportunities to make virtual trips to any place in the world without even leaving home. Undoubtedly, such trips cannot and should not replace real ones, but they help us to see every corner of the Earth for free.
You can fly in the stratosphere over the entire planet or over the rooftops of Paris and Rome, visit the halls of the British Museum, find yourself among the mountains and waterfalls of Iceland, or in the amazing underwater world on the Galapagos Islands. These services could be easily integrated into any business by the software development outsourcing company working in the niche!
There are no more obstacles: let your clients discover a new, amazing, huge world with VR technologies! Here are just some of the relevant examples, how this technology can be successfully implemented:
1. Panoramas by 360cities.net
As poets describe the world in poems, artists in paintings, composers in music, this website describes the world in beautiful panoramas. Thousands of photos from all over the world are collected here. You can easily travel around the capital of Nepal or explore the panorama of London, which was shot with such a high quality that you can see the faces of people in the windows of the houses.
2. Google Photo Tours
These photo tours give you the opportunity to walk around the Taj Mahal, see Dubai from the world’s tallest 800-meter skyscraper Burj Khalifa, watch the views of Paris from the Eiffel Tower or travel to Chichen Itza pyramids.
There are also unusual trips, for example, going down to a salt mine similar to an underground palace in Wieliczka (Poland) or immersion in a real underwater world in dozens of different places, for example, at the Galapagos Islands.
3. Air Pano
The stunning project of the Air Pano team is a rare case when professional enthusiasts create products at a level that was previously subject only to wealthy Internet corporations. Filming takes place from everything that can fly: from airplanes and balloons to airships and drones.
Now the site has about 2,000 panoramas from the most picturesque corners of the world. Here you can visit the Bromo volcano or admire the northern lights in Iceland, visit Jordanian Petra and even look inside the famous Treasury.
4. Art Project
Behind the modest name lies an incredible exposition – tens of thousands of paintings from the best museums in the world. Moreover, each was shot in such high quality that it is possible, for example, to see in detail each smear of Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” or to look into the eyes of the “Mona Lisa” by Da Vinci.
5. ISS Webcam
Are you fascinated by the unknown expanses of the universe? Then watch live broadcasts from a webcam on the International Space Station. You will have a feeling that the camera is somewhere very close and not 400 km from the surface of the planet.
