Gyroscope creates interactive, panoramic 3D tours using REALVIZ Stitcher, QuickTime VR


Tim Petros can sneak you onto the set of some of the most highly rated primetime TV shows: The West Wing, The OC and 7th Heaven, to name a few. With his help, you can drop into the Oval Office where Martin Sheen's President Bartlett wrestles with international crises, pay an unannounced visit to the living rooms of the affluent in Orange County or tip-toe into the bedroom where Jessica Biel's Mary sleeps.
