Interactive 360 Videos

360-degree videos, also known as immersive videos or spherical videos, are video recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time, shot using an omnidirectional camera or a collection of cameras. During playback the viewer has control of the viewing direction like a panorama just by using a mouse on computer or a finger on a tablet or smartphone.

This is how fires can get started. Wind picks up and embers fly around if the campfire is not completely extinguished after its use.
This simulation was to test the recording and stitching of a 360 camera capture session in a fire pit and natural surroundings. Earthquakes and Fires can happen anywhere. Are you and your family prepared?

Note: Look for a plastic water bottle on the blue surface in the Earthquake simulation.

Not all of memories should be disaster related.  We have to remember the good times in the bad and who we are living for… don’t despair.
