CleVR Panoramas


I thought this was pretty neat - a site which allows you to stitch photos together into a panorama online, and also hosts them there for your guests to view. The flash viewer has a pretty neat feature - it allows for clickable hotspots, which will take you to a new panorama.

http://www.clevr.com

View this panorama for example - which will give you a full 360 degree tour of someone's home.

Click and drag to pan around inside the panorama, and click on the hotspots to move to another room... neat!
