Demos

Sunset at Miami Beach provides Panora.me with a five star playground to test its technology...

A few weeks ago, we were in Florida for an important site survey (more info to come) and we've taken this opportunity to make some demos in Miami.

South Pointe Park Pier offers plenty of possibilities and passers-by were more than happy to take part in this improvised test session!

Here are two shots with our friends Lindsay and Javier:  

Don't you think that the Pink Granite Coast in Brittany (France) deserves more than a selfie?

This week, our team was in Bretagne to finalise the details for a summer installation in an amazing location - stay tuned!

We took this opportunity to unlock the full visual potential of this lovely region and organised a demo session in Ploumanac'h.

The Pink Granite Coast, so-called because of the colour of its rocks, is one of the most beautiful stretches of Brittany’s coastline. The area is renowned for its unusual rock formations, the best of which can be found on the coastal path between Perros-Guirec and the port of Ploumanac’h.
We concentrated our tests around the lighthouse Mean Ruz.  Built in 1860 and destroyed in 1944, it had been rebuilt in pink granite in 1947. The view is beautiful, and the huge pink granite blocks are impressive.

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...

Before flying back to Brussels, we've made a stop in the Nan Lian Garden - a Chinese Classical Garden in Diamond Hill. The garden has an area of 3.5 hectares. It is designed in the Tang Dynasty-style with hills, water features, trees, rocks and wooden structures.

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 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.

Panora.me tests for Dakota Photos in Plaza de Toros Las Ventas, Madrid

Dakota Photos is the main concession photography companies in Spain with some really nice sites.  They asked to make a demo on their site at 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.

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...
