I used Flash CS4 to make that cube using the Papervision3D add-on.
What you see are normal cubefaces scaled down to fit the cube.
This is just a simple test to see if it is possible to have
interactive 3D elements inside an also interactive VR panorama.
Next step would be to map an equirectangular image to a sphere. That
would be soooo much nicer that the animations I've made so far. And
then? Animated birds? Whatever you can think of and build? If all
this works (and development of true GPU hardware acceleration by Flash
pushes forward) wonderful possibilities become within reach!
My website is set up in such a way that it prefers DevalVR to Flash,
and Flash to QuickTime. Only the Flash version has the experimental
goodies. Patrick's demo most probably is available in Flash only.
