360Stories

Panorama player for Samsung Gear VR

With Samsung releasing their new VR-headset, in a collaboration with Oculus Rift, there was a need for some VR-apps to jumpstart the Gear VR ecosystem. Prototyp was hired together with the friends at Äventyret and 360Cities, to create one of the worlds first apps for the Gear VR.

The result was 360Stories, an app that plays “stories” based on 360° panoramas with an accompanying narrator track and subtitles. 360Cities, and other users with access to 360° content, can then create their own stories, in accordance with an XML-format, for use in the app.
