On Saturday, March 20, more than 180 photographers in 40 countries around the world celebrated the Equinox by creating VR panoramas. This site showcases the results of their efforts."

I liked the one taken half-underwater in the Yellowstone River. Made me feel like I was ankle-deep standing there drinking in the scenery.

Virtual Toruism may just be the wave of the future, especially when 3D and some actual sensations are added.

meah some of the cameras these guys are using are upwards of 15 grand, they take the full shot in one frame, and quicktime VP Pro.

like this one, i met the guy who did the one in Camden Maine, he showed me the site about 3 weeks ago, pretty cool stuff.
