Everest Panorama Project Wins Reddot Award

A new project created with Blend4Web is buzzing around social media.  I first read about this project in this article by Andrey Prakhov.  This amazing web application includes a 3D map of the Mt. Everest region as well as panorama pictures taken at various points all the way up to the peak.

Live Demo

 This is a very polished project complete with voice narration in Russian and English.  What this amounts to is a virtual tour of Mt. Everest.  You can navigate up the path to the peak in a very similar fashion that Google Street view works. It’s as close to Everest as your ever going to get while sitting at your desk!  I tried this in both Chrome and Mozilla.   They both ran it very well.  Hint: the F11 key puts your browser in full screen mode, works well with apps like this.
Oh, and did I mention?  This project won the reddot award!
I found a very nice video work-up about this project on YouTube (English subtittles).
