Circlescapes chose Google Cardboard as its primary VR delivery platform for two reasons:
  1. The headsets are inexpensive. Schools can even custom-print them with their branding, and send them as a mailer to prospective students and clients
  2. The headsets work with both iPhones and Android phones.

Of course, if you want to create something for other VR headsets, Circlescapes can do that, too.

The Circlescapes VR Experience App includes samples of:
  • 360° video campus scenes
  • 360° video tour guides
  • 360° panoramas (both with and without people)
  • HDR photography
  • Clickable interactive hotspots
  • Integrated Photo slideshows
  • Embedded Video and audio clips
  • Music and sound effects
  • Thumbnail image navigation
