The San Jose Japantown history book project was originally intended as an interactive CD-ROM with a virtual-reality tour of the neighborhood. It used Quicktime VR technology. The CD-ROM was eventually dropped to focus on a book. The Flash movie on the right was the original promo for the project.
The Quicktime movie will either be displayed below or downloaded. You need Quicktime 7 to view the file. Click and drag in the window to navigate through the sample Quicktime VR. (Apology: because Quicktime VR is an older technology, you might not have the necessary plug-in to play the virtual reality movie.)
