Hello,

I see there are possibilities to make 360° videos available with Oculus VR.
However, how could I use my panotour visits with Oculus? Is there any options or plugin soon available?
If it doesn't exist yet, it could great as well!

To split screen for a single spherical panorama to see it in Occulus is "easy" (http://krpano.com/stereo3d/#top)
But to see a full tour in occulus is another tricky task : How to navigate from a scene to another ? Does all plugins and spots disappear ? etc etc...

We all, you and kolor, have to think about how the interface between the user and the tour should be done while the user has a HMD (Head Mounted Device) in front of his eyes.

I was wondering the same thing. I work for a university and we're building our own campus tour and trail guide using Panotour. It would be wonderful to have the tour viewable via. the Oculus at college fairs.

I see that one company has a solution, see video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RMNY1R ... e=youtu.be It's toward the end of the video where they show how navigation is achieved.

I would love to see an early implementation of Oculus support, even if it´s only experimental.

Navigation - how to navigate from one scene to another:
- Look and lean forward
- Look for 2 secs (as in the CNN video)
- Voice command (well, that´s for v2.0)
- Gestures using Leap Motion
- Key strokes/mouse button / presenter button

Anyway - just get it out quick with some simple options, and we can all start testing and give proper feedback on how to improve it.

And remember to include livepano!

One note: we have occulus and leap motion support on Kolor Eyes Desktop for displaying 360 video and the good feature is that it supports also 360 stills images. So just drag'n'drop a bunch of 360video and images and it will loop over them in the oculus.

Can you think of a good way to view single/sequecial livepano scenes? I guess the simplest solution would be to export the whole scene to a full 360 video in some way.
