In 2013 and 2014 we exhibited virtual reality at the Johannesburg Motorcycle Show. This was the first time Virtual Reality was showcased at a Motorcycle show in South Africa.
This event happened one year before Google Launched Google Cardboard and the Samsung Gear VR headset was not launched yet. Almost nobody at the time talked about Virtual Reality and there wasn’t any mainstream VR headsets yet. We also developed our own 360° Camera Rig system and used it to create a Virtual Tour of the 2013 Johannesburg Motorcycle Show as well as the 2014 Johannesburg Motorcycle show.
This was early days for Virtual Reality and there wasn’t commercial 360° Video cameras available yet. This was way before the Samsung Gear 360 camera, Gopro Fusion or Insta360 cameras existed!
