A while ago we produced this 360 object VR of the PCOS (Precinct Count Optical Scanner) machine for ABS-CBN’s election education subsite. This is our public service project in support of the Philippine’s first ever automated election in May 10, 2010. The shoot toke place on-site at Comelec’s office in Intramuros and is probably the very 1st time that an object VR is used for online journalism in our country.
