Air & Space Museum to be captured in QT VR

The National Air and Space Museum (the worlds most visited museum) is not only getting a new Annex this year, but it is also going to be captured via QuickTime VR.

A page from WorldVR describes the project, which is being sponsored by Apple, Nikon, Hyatt, Lexar, Sony, and others.

According to the site, all of the artifacts in the new annex will be captured as they move in, so that people who can't get out to the new facility can still have access to the exhibits via distance-learning techniques.

They also mention using the results of the photography not only in kiosks, but also in handheld devices, which holds some interest as an opportunity for guides.
