Shooting the "Vision Next 100" Video in stereoscopic 3D was not easy. Director Arnd Buss von Kuk (Munich, Germany) wanted the 3D short shot with the point of view of a real motorcycle ride. That is why ScreenPlane had to create a gyro stabilized system moving like a bike...
"We had to create a system, which is taking out the vibrations in driving direction, but still follows all movements to the side, when the motor cycle is leaning into curves. This was done with a gyro stabilized rig, designed and built by Screen Plane for this project“, explains Christian Künstler from gate.11. Watch "Vision Next 100" here under.

360Cities.net, the world's biggest spherical panorama publishing platform, is now hosting 3D stereoscopic panoramas. They can be viewed on phone-based VR devices, or on your PC screen if you have a mirror stereoscope. If you don't select VR mode, they are shown as 2D panoramas, with full range zoom. In VR mode they offer zoom over a smaller range, and static panning (with finger or mouse) in addition to the normal gyro-controlled panning.
