Imagine 'teleporting home' to immersive 360º holiday greetings from loved ones.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
Soldiers across the globe are able to ‘teleport home’ for the holidays now through January 1st through an immersive, heartwarming virtual tour experience.
Thousands of professional panoramic virtual tour photographers – and millions of iPhone and Android users that have 360º panoramic photography shooting apps – can create personal holiday 'holodecks' for soldiers; and then share these unique experiences for free as part of the Gather ‘Round Your Troops for the Holidays campaign via TourWrist – a new virtual tour platform.
“Imagine what it must be like to be stationed overseas – far from your family and friends during the holidays,” writes TourWrist CEO & Founder Charles Armstrong in an eBlast to thousands of TourWrist virtual tour photographers today. “Now imagine ‘teleporting home’ to immersive 360º holiday greetings from loved ones.”
“While virtual tours are great for viewing hotel rooms, homes for sale and restaurants, they’re also an excellent medium for heartwarming holiday greetings,” said Armstrong. “For example, using the TourWrist app, a fire department can gather ‘round the troops to wish them happy holidays. They're also an excellent way to solute our soldiers.”
For help finding a volunteer photographer, post a note to the TourWrist Facebook page, Panoguide.com or other panoramic communities on Facebook and LinkedIn. Or, download a 360º panoramic shooting app and create a free TourWrist account to post an unlimited number of virtual tour scenes for free.
