Reel – Provides 360° View of Anything

Posted · Category: Demo Tour, GPL License, MIT License

Reel is a jQuery plugin which takes an image tag and makes it a live “projection” of pre-built animation frames sequence. Its aim is to provide a 360° view of something or someplace. Great alternative to widely used Flash techniques. Stitched image is not required, but they do support them too.

Try reel for yourself. Place your mouse pointer over images below. And roll your mouse wheel up/down or drag the image left/right. Reel has been tested in Safari 3+, Firefox 3+, Chrome and IE 5.5+.


Requirements: jQuery Framework

    nice! but wtf is that thing in the background of the car demo? looks like a shrunken head sticking its tung out…

    @Dan Lol.
    The 360 image sequence probably came from video record then they cut it up to images.

  • Wow! that’s wonderful, It has been few months since I purchased my mobile phone that supports panorama photos. I was wondering how can I display them in a web page.
    Thank a lot for this ;)
