360 Video of the 2016 Jaguar Simola Hillclimb Race


The Jaguar Simola Hillclimb is one of the most prestigious racing events on the South African Automotive calendar.

20 Minutes of 360° Video action at the Starting Line of the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb

This is the longer version of one of the 360° videos that we created at the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb. In this video we placed the camera at the starting line of the event. You can watch the video on your computer, or you can place it in a virtual reality headset to be immersed into the experience. Just like a spectator that were physically at the event you would now be able to see the cars life size as if you were there.

One of the limitation however at the moment with virtual reality 360° video is that you cannot move around in the scene, as you could have if you were in a high end virtual reality experience as the HTC VIVE. In the future it might be possible to scan a 360° video from multiple angles allowing you to walk inside a true virtual reality environment as if it were real! For now 360° video is an awesome way of capturing events like the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb it is almost like a time machine allowing you to go back into the past and experience stuff as if you were their.

In a long view 360° video is going to become priceless in how we look back into the past!

We have come a long way since making this video back in 2016. Our technology is so much better today and where you can see some stitching lines and synchronization issues in the video above with the new technologies we are using you would hardly see these.
