QuickTime VW Bug
Famous immersive photographer Dennis Biela will capture from the driver's seat of a specially-outfitted Volkswagen Bug using Apple technology (known as the 'QT Bug'). "The goals are to teach immersive photography skills, advantages of Apple QuickTime, digital imaging and demonstrate state-of-the-art equipment while documenting the natural beauty of the USA." All imagery is delivered via industry-standard Apple QuickTime including video, QTVR and photographic slide shows. An Apple X-Serve computer is installed inside the QT Bug. When the tour concludes in February 2005, all the imagery and selected sponsor hardware used during the tour will be donated to the collection of a major national museum for exhibit.
