Space Shuttle Endeavour 360° VR Panorama

The folks at EveryScape have done a great job stitching together a virtual world from just four fisheye photos per room. Before showing the results, let me show you the inputs. Here is one of my HDR shots, and the three others are below, rotating clockwise.

 

They unwrap the overlapping photos and add navigation arrows so you can zoom from room to room around the shuttle.

 

When you click the link below, remember to start by clicking the full screen button in the bottom right of the image. Then you can click on the image and drag to look up down and all around. When you see an orange arrow, you can zoom to the neighboring room. (and note that there is one rectangular area on the floor of this flight deck that we are still reworking.)

 

OK, so here is the prototype build of the Endeavour VR starting with this flight deck.

 

We did this as an exhibit for the California Science Center which will be receiving this shuttle but will be unable to power up the screens like you see here.
