Feast Your Eyes: The Latest Issue of VRMAG is Online

I've been a fan of Apple's QuickTime VR since the mid-90s, when I wrote about the prerelease versions of it for Macworld.

VR and panoramic photography are alive and well, and one of the best places to learn about it is VRMAG, a Web-based magazine for VR and panoramic photographers.

Pour a favorite beverage, play some music, and take some amazing tours, including a full-screen panorama of Rossyln Chapel, one of the stars of The Da Vinci Code.
