Stroll in VR land

Want a VR sneak peak of what you might see on a Stroll walking tour?

This spring I had the opportunity to work with the team from Ballinran Entertainment, an interactive video studio based in Stratford, Ontario. Their team created a video series called Virtual Waterloo: Virtual Waterloo is a collaboration between Explore Waterloo Region @explorewaterlooregion and Ballinran Entertainment produced under the Digital Main Street Community Collaboration @digitalmainstreet program. Financial support from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario and the Government of Ontario supported the project.

I met their 8K spherical VR camera that produces video to be viewed on a smartphone or immersive gaming goggles. Also, I worked with their 5.7K action camera, which captures experiences from a completely different angle. Super cool gear!
