Nepal before and after the earthquake

Very interesting article on the New York Times using VR technology.
Brian Dawson was on Katmandu, Nepal just when the earthquake hit the city and shot these panoramas for the New York Times. By making a very good use of the VR technology the newspaper showed some of Panedia’s Katmandu VR images taken before the disaster and compared with the ones taken by Brian. The devastation is heartbreaking and quite visible.
On this article we can even interact with both images simultaneously and see all around as we here actually there. It was quite a clever way to use VR for journalism and it certainly rose attention for this disaster and the need to help the Nepal people.
