Karl sent us the news that he has just launched a new website, “Virtual Tour of Tolkien’s Oxford”. Here’s the info:
This week we have launched a new Web site, “Virtual Tour of Tolkien’s Oxford”…
Using Apple’s free QuickTime VR technology we have built a series of interactive panoramic photographs of the places in our home town of Oxford that were well known to JRR Tolkien, such as his former homes,
colleges and pubs.
The URL is: https://www.chem.ox.ac.uk/oxfordtour/tolkientour/index.html
The Tolkien tour is part of a much larger effort to build interactive panoramas of Oxford. Currently there are over 700 panoramas of the historical city of Oxford at https://www.chem.ox.ac.uk/oxfordtour.
Click the link above to take a look at the very interesting sites (you will be asked to download Quicktime VR if you’ve not installed it yet)!
