General Information, thanks and credits
The Photo Sphere community has produced some fantastic pieces of photography and until now have been limited to displaying them on flat screens. With the coming technologies from Oculus, Sony, Samsung, Altergaze and Durovis all that is set to change essentially putting you where the creating photographer was, in the center of the composition. What we are presenting many of the best examples of this work, with the creators permissions, for you to enjoy at your own pace.
If you are a Photo Sphere enthusiast and are interested in this work or would like to see your work presented in this way then please do not hesitate in getting touch. If you have any suggestions or ways to improve or enhance this app, again please get in contact.
We hope you enjoy and if you are interested in exploring the world of Photo Spheres then please check out the Photo Sphere group on Google+ and the Equirectangular Photo group on Flickr.
