My VR shooting setup in the garden: Powerbook 5300, Tripod, QuickTake 150, and Kaidan tripod head.
This virtual tour was created to conduct research on how designers can best use QuickTime VR to author virtual experiences (with particular attention to VR on the web). The title of the paper is "The Challenge: Designing A Meaningful Experience with QuickTime VR." This is an M.A. thesis project for the Department of Telecommunication at Michigan State University, expected to be complete in October, 1996.
