Demos from Hong Kong

On our way to Macao, we've made a stop in Hong Kong.  This was the perfect opportunity to make some demos in this amazing destination...

At first, we went to Victoria Peak - Hong Kong Island's highest point and a landmark of the Hong Kong skyline.

Then, we went to Central Harbourfront, just next to the Hong Kong Observation Wheel and the Hong Kong Maritime Museum...

Is Athens ready to take the most out of tourist generated content?

Selfie vs panoramic selfie: the contest!

We were recently asked to make a comparison between a regular selfie and a panoramic selfie...  Which one will be the most efficient on social media do you think?


Demo from the Saint-Etienne Temple in Mulhouse

From 24th of November till 26th of December we'll have a temporary installation set up on the top of Saint-Etienne Temple.

This Protestant church was built between 1858 and 1868, designed by J.B. Schacre in the highly fashionable Neo-Gothic style. Located on the Place de la Réunion, Saint-Etienne Temple is also a mecca of culture at the heart of the city with concerts, exhibitions and events.

Everyone attending the Christmas Market (on Wed, Fri, Sat and Sun) will get their free panoramic selfie. Don't miss it!

Demo at the Citadel of Namur

We've been invited by the tourism authorities of the Namur Province to present our panoramic selfie solution to the main tourism actors in the region.  The meeting was held at the Citadel of Namur and this was a good occasion for a demo!  

More news will come in the next couple of weeks.  Stay tuned...

New demo at Atomium shoot from the roof of Palais 5, Brussels Expo!

Today, we were lucky to make some tests from an amazing place: the roof of Palais 5 at Brussels Expo.  Built in 1935 for the World Exposition, this building offers a breath-taking view on Brussels and the Atomium.

Have a look at our demo!

Demo in El Parc Retiro, Madrid

While in Madrid (see other blog post about Plaza Toros de Las Ventas), we took the opportunity to make this demo in the Parc del Buen Retiro...

The Buen Retiro Park is a large and popular 1.4 km2 (350 acres) park at the edge of the city centre, very close to the Puerta de Alcalá and not far from the Prado Museum. A magnificent park, filled with beautiful sculpture and monuments, galleries, a peaceful lake and host to a variety of events, it is one of Madrid's premier attractions. The park is entirely surrounded by the present-day city.

Demo in Plaza de Toros Las Ventas, Madrid

During our trip in Madrid, we took the opportunity to make a demo in Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas (often shortened to Las Ventas).  This is a famous bullring situated in the Guindalera quarter of the district of Salamanca, it was inaugurated on June 17, 1931. It has a seating capacity of 25,000.

This bullring was designed by the architect José Espeliú in the Neo-Mudéjar (Moorish) style with ceramic incrustations. The seats are situated in ten "tendidos". The price of the seats depends upon how close they are to the arena and whether they are in the sun or the shade (the latter being more expensive). The bullfighting season starts in March and ends in October; bullfights are held every day during the San Isidro Fiesta, and every Sunday or holiday during the season.

Las Ventas can also be visited and there is also a museum...

Demo session at the Charleroi Belfry, UNESCO world heritage site

The belfry is part of the Charleroi City Hall, designed by architect Joseph André in 1936. It is a perfect blend of Classicism and Art Deco. The 70-metre-high belfry can be accessed by climbing 250 stairs and was built using blue and white stone and bricks. It is crowned with a small bronze tower. The last three levels are reserved for the chambers of the 47 bells forming the carillon. Every fifteen minutes it chimes out a few bars of folk songs by Jacques Bertrand, the bard of Charleroi. This belfry is a UNESCO world heritage site and can now be visited by tourists every Wed an Sat afternoons.

We couldn't resist to test our panoramic selfie technology on this beautiful - but sadly quite unknown - historical site...
