Pano2VR in the Wild — Volvo Ocean Race 360º Photos

Here’s a great project that is appearing a bit late to the blog (sorry, Christian!).

Apple’s iBooks is a great way to create, publish and distribute a gallery or VR tour (offline!). This is what Christian Kleiman has done with his documentation of the Volvo Ocean Race (a nine month sailing race).



These stills don’t do Christian’s work justice. So, at the least, download the sample book from iBooks. If you don’t have iBooks, then go check out Christian’s work on 360 cities!


If you’re into sailing, then you will certainly enjoy the gallery. If not, then we hope it inspires you to create your own gallery.

If you’re on a Mac, you can download Apple’s iBooks Author and using our iBooks template, you can simply drag the interactive panoramas to the book.

As of this writing, iBooks supports all aspects of a Pano2VR output except 360º video.
