Cool representation of Sau Paulo

A friendly librarian (Elizabeth Rockwood) invited me over to take a look at this site..... There's an areal photo of Sau Paulo on the ground, and a series of photo-spheres linked down to key points on the ground. The spheres look rather odd because they are carrying full 360degree pictures of the points linked on the map. Stand inside the sphere, and switch to "mouse look" to get the 3D view experience. Turn on the sound, and you get a commentary about the location and image.

Once I'd mastered the art of standing in the sphere, and getting Mouse Look turned on properly, then it was a pretty amazing experience!
