We've covered how technology has shaped relief efforts in Haiti as well as how it has affects our perception of the tragedy. CNN is offering new perspectives of the nation with three interactive, immersive videos.
The videos were shot by Immersive Media, a company that specialises in interactive 360-degree video and helped provide much of the data that powers Google Street View. They have long had demos of their unique videos, in which the viewer has full control to pan and zoom even as the video plays, on their website, but it's good to see the technology being implemented on a current event and displayed on such a wide platform.
The devastation in Haiti is still largely unfathomable, no matter how many reports or photos or statistics one consumes. But this type of project shows how technology is always providing new ways to experience the world. [CNN via
