Since last Thursday, the tourists visiting the Grand Place can trigger a shooting device placed out on one of the roofs, from a terminal. Eventually, they receive a short video by email, which starts centred on them, then zooms out spectacularly to offer a panoramic view of the place.
For Panora.me, the start-up which created this technology, this permanent facility represents a return to their roots. “In the past months, we have been operating panoramic selfie on events all over the world. So, we are thrilled to propose our panoramic selfie system to tourists visiting Brussels, because it’s here that everything started, and it’s a fair reward for Brussels to be the first city in the world offering this service permanently”, adds Raphaël de Borman, the co-founder of Panora.me.
The panoramic selfie terminal is located right in front of the Tourist Information Desk. You can access it at any time throughout the day until 5:30 pm.
