Google "Tour Creator" allows you to design professional quality VR content

Google

Expeditions, as you may remember from its 2015 debut, allows travelers from all over the globe to embark on a VR tour of iconic landmarks like the Burj Khalifa and Machu Picchu, or far-off places, like Antarctica. With Google Expeditions, students could view VR tours of sites and locations of historical importance. "One of the more interesting ones is KLM Airlines, which has built a set of tours using Tour Creator to train new employees in different aircraft". When inside Poly all users need to do is open a link in a browser or view via a compatible head-mounted display (HMD) like Google Cardboard or Daydream.

This new feature came as a request from both teachers and students.

A positive feedback from teachers and students also gave the company an idea of creating this new service which would allow them to share their VR experience with others. Tour Creator is designed for VR at the moment, not AR.

To create an immersive "tour", a person will need a few 360-degree photos that they can upload from their camera or direct from the Google's Street View catalog.

"We've been working with a number of real estate companies who have been using Tour Creator to create virtual walkthroughs of homes", Bavor went on to say. With this, students, teachers, in fact, everyone gain the capability to make their own VR tours.

Essentially, you can produce professional-level VR content without a steep learning curve.

These projects can also be embedded to school's website for more people to view it. Plus, later this year, we'll add the ability to import these tours into the Expeditions application.

The Tour Creator tool is web-based, using a desktop PC browser to create the tour experiences and publish them to Google's 3D content portal, Poly.
