PanoMoments are a new creative VR medium that couples time and space. They’re captured using an automated rotating platform, a fisheye lens, and pretty much any camera. The result is a 360 degree living photo - a VR moment in time. And since there's no stitching involved, you gain depth perception through motion parallax along the rotational axis, creating a more immersive experience.
PanoMoments are best viewed on a smartphone or tablet using the beta app available below. Note that the native app is currently only compatible with the latest couple generations of phones and tablets, though we are working on expanding compatibility over the next few months. Once you have the native app installed, head over to the Featured Gallery.
We've barely scratched the surface of the creative possibilities and can't wait to see what others will capture. On this site you'll find a capture guide, recommendations on equipment, and an uploader for creating your own PanoMoments. The capture process currently requires some prior photography experience and a willingness to tinker, but once you get the hang of it, it really is quite simple and fun. The core format is comprised of an arbitrary number of frames equally spaced around a 360 degree rotation. This makes time an integral part of the PanoMoments medium and an important part of the creative process.
