The tours are also known as Virtual Realty, giving anyone – a buyer or curious out of town tourists, a virtual walk-through of the destination or property in 360 degrees interactive environment, all in the comfort of their own home.  They can do advanced researches on how the destinations look like before they plan their travel, as an example.

Each particular area in the 360 environment can have hotspots, which are clickable dots that when clicked on, shows a pop up information describing what that particular area is.

Different types of tours:  In addition, there are different types of tours we offer.  One is the traditional area by area 360 tour (ie: by Kitchen, Living Room, Master, etc).  The other is the complete walk-through 360 tour, which is similar to Google’s Street View Virtual Tour by following the arrow pathways throughout the property, making the experience more immersive.  The walk-through has many different rotational points.  The walk-through can have hotspots info boxes, video, narration, and audio integration with it as well.

The Virtual Tours can be programmed and customized to include music, popup infobox hotspots, narrative voiceovers, etc so that it can be designed as an educational tool or to tell a story about the situation.

Panoramic Virtual Tours:  We offer interactive panoramic virtual tours where users can scroll the image left and right, but not in a 360 degree and does not include up and down motion.  It is also possible to auto playback the horizontal moving motion like a video, once the tour is loaded.  Having the panorama tour auto playback simulates a virtual realty and also simulates a video playback, while still allowing user to override and interactively pan the image left and right.

Sometimes this maybe sufficient enough as an alternative to 360 degree motion, if users just wanted to see a general wide angle panoramic view of the skyline, scenery, interior space – just to get a quick idea of how a wide view looks like.

Walk-through Tour

Complete Walk-through 360 Virtual Tour

Our 360 Virtual Tour comes in 2 different forms.  One form is standard Virtual Tour, having a few rotations representing main locations of the house such as only master bedroom, living room, kitchen, and dining room.  The other form is a walk-through enhanced 360 Virtual Tour, whereby many rotations are photographed at many points along the pathways of the property, and viewers can click on directional arrows to follow along the path to view the property. The walk-through tour is similar to Google Street View maps feature.  Applicable use of this walk through tour can be used in Tourist attractions such as aquariums and museums, and informational popup hotspots can be integrated into the tour to showcase specific information.

 

We offer this walk-through virtual tour for the Real Estate industry as well.

 

360 Hotspots Infobox

360 Tours with Hotspots and Infobox Details

The virtual tours can be customized to display a walk through type tour, joining several panaromas together using hotspots controls, and also having users bring up an infobox at several points of interests showing closeup photo of the detailed point along with descriptions.  An example is a walk through tour of a bus, where users can also zoom in or click on the points of interests to display an infobox that outline details of the overhead control panel above the driver seat, along with the description.

360 Virtual Tours with hotspots are very useful for training and educational purposes.  Users can click on details within the tour, bringing up close up details, descriptions and photo of that particular area.  Voiceovers and music can also be integrated within the tour itself to bring a more virtual reality experience.  Online schools and Distance Learning programs may benefit from this by exposing students into a more immersive lifelike environment with interaction capabilities.

Narrated Hotspots

An enhancement to our 360 Virtual Tour is having a narrated voiceover for each particular hotspots while the user interacts with the 360 Virtual Tour environment. This is also known as a virtual tour guide, where the user looks around the environment while listening to the tour guide describing the environments. The tour pages can also have repeated looping instrument music to give the tours a more enjoyable experience.

These narrated hot spot virtual tours are ideal for educating the public, as well as for tourism and education sectors.

Each particular area in the 360 environment can have hotspots, which are clickable dots that when clicked on, shows a pop up information describing what that particular area is. The hotspots can have a close up detailed photo and text as popup information.

This feature works very well for Real Estate 360 Virtual Tour environments as well.
