Check out the panos on TourWrist to get a real perspective of what it’s like to be a presenter at DEMO.


The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself.”
–Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

When Alice fell down the rabbit hole she would have done well to check with TourWrist in advance to see if there were any 360° panoramic images that might have better acquainted her with Wonderland.

TourWrist is a virtual tour platform that lets you shoot and upload your own 360° panos with your smart phone or iPad, either online or offline.  Stitching the images together is easy.  The end result is a panoramic image that lets you take a look around…literally.  We first saw TourWrist at The Connected Traveler Technology Showcase at The New York Times Travel Show in March 2012 where TourWrist gave booth visitors an iPad with a pano of a resort.  The visitors spun around, raising and lowering an iPad to get a full immersion feel of the resort.

Today at DEMO Spring 2012, the emerging technology event, TourWrist revealed its next step:  Hot spots or PanoSpots™ that can be added to a panoramic to help explain details of the panoramic image, adding audio, video, or even a link to another web site.  The PanoSpots can also take you to another adjacent pano, almost like opening the door to another room (they call it planar acceleration).   Hmmm.  Alice would have liked that.

You can download TourWrist from the Apple App Store for free or from the company’s web site where TourWrist is building an online library of panos – a virtual community where you can view and even get referrals to pano photographers around the world.  www.tourwrist.com
