About the Creator

Rod Edwards is an international, award-winning photographer who has pioneered 360 technology to the travel and tourism industry. Over the last fifteen years he has introduced 360 imagery to Visit Britain for their “Britain Is Great” worldwide campaigns, as well as their “Bond Is Great” global campaign (in association with Sony Pictures in Hollywood). He is the sole approved supplier of 360 imagery for The National Trust, and he first introduced this media to them back in 2008 when he shot their “A Giant’s Cause” UNESCO campaign promoting The Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland. He has been interviewed and profiled by the likes of Dezeen (the world’s most influential architecture, interiors and design magazine), Arch Daily (the world’s largest online prestige architecture magazine) and Archi.ru (Russia’s leading artchitecture and interior design online magazine). He has also recently finished working on 360 VR projects promoting the National Parks in the USA in association with Coca-Cola, Regal Cinemas and Xanterra Luxury World Travel Collection.

HERE ARE SOME FAQ

Please check out these frequently asked questions. If you have any more questions,
please email us via the contact form below.

Will the 360º virtual tour work on my device?

Yes, the standard 360º online virtual tour works with most desktop computers, laptops, tablets, iPads and smartphones.

Will the virtual reality experience work with my Android smartphone?

The virtual reality experience will work with most recent Android smartphones that have a built in gyroscope sensor. Please check your phone manufacturer’s website for more information, or just try the free Demo tour in the VR viewer.

Will the virtual reality experience work with my Apple iPhone?

The virtual reality experience will work with iPhone 6 or later. Make sure you tap “Allow” when VR Tour Bus app opens and asks to “Access Motion & Orientation”. This will activate the iPhone’s internal gyroscope sensor.

How do I unlock the full tour?

To access the fully unlocked tour, you can either make payment via Paypal (desktop, laptop, tablet and iPads) or make payment via Apple App Store & Google Play Store (smartphones). Alternatively, if you buy the VR Tour Bus viewer, you can scan the QR Code on the box using the free smartphone app.

What smartphone screensize does the VR Tour Bus viewer support?

The VR viewer will work with all sizescreens from 3.5” to 7”. The faster your phone is and the higher the resolution of your screen, the better the quality. 

How fast does my internet data speed need to be?

To keep app and tour size to a minimum, the VR Tour Bus continually downloads and streams data. We recommend a stable download speed of 10Mbps or faster to deliver best performance.

How do I know the screensize of my smartphone for setting up VR?

You can check your smartphone manufacturer’s website, or measure the diagonal width of your smartphone screen size using the free VR Tour Bus ruler. 

Can I only use the VR Tour Bus viewer for the smartphone VR experience?

No, any Google Cardboard VR viewer should work with the Apple & Android smartphone apps. However, the VR Tour Bus viewer has been optimised for the best VR experience.
