able to make little spheres with a panorama wrapped around them (on the
outside, like the new Microsoft display software) that you could ENTER
and then find yourself on the inside, enjoying the usual panorama VR
experience. You could then zoom up to each panorama sphere, see roughly
what it showed, then pop inside for a look.
This would make a much more inviting and attractive kind of "hot spot,"
I saw something like this a few years ago, but it used proprietary software
and it's dropped below my event horizon since then...
