Flying Around the World
Hello, New World is an amazing virtual flight around the world composed of a number of seamlessly connected 360 degree interactive videos. It's a bit like exploring the world with Google Street View but with interactive videos rather than still images.
This interactive whirlwind tour of the world flies you over Mount Fuji, the Great Wall of China, the Great Barrier Reef and a number of other locations around the world. As the tour plays you can rotate the camera's point of view and explore the view around you as you fly over these world famous landmarks.
The different interactive videos of the different locations are seamlessly cut together. At the end of one video the camera flies into the clouds and then emerges out of the clouds into a different location. There is a lot to explore in this interactive but my favorites are diving under the water at the Great Barrier Reef, the night-time timelapse at Mt. MacKay and the fireworks over the Shanghai skyline.
