This interactive prototype QuickTimeVR project was demonstrated to the White House Curator, the Chief Usher, the Secret Service and Director of the White House Historical Association. At the time of making this prototype, QTVR technology was not available to the public and this was the first project of its kind ever produced using this technology. It took six months to get the clearance to take the many photographs needed for this project.
We are continuously working on a complete architectural history of the White House that spans over 200 years. The cornerstone was laid October 13,1792. The viewer will be able to mouse click on a time bar or on a portrait of the First Family in the portrait gallery that will transport you to that particular time. Very few people are aware of the many architectural changes that took place in the White House over time.
