360 Degree Operating Theatre Orientation Resource Developed
Aaron has been working with colleagues from the School of Health Sciences (Gill Langmack) and the Nottingham University Hospital Trust (Jennifer Wallace) to develop a small 360-degree operating theatre orientation resource, to enable students to get a feel of what an operating theatre environment is like and familiarise themselves with the organisation and some of the equipment.
Aaron made use of the Ricoh Theta S (kindly loaned by the University of Nottingham’s External Relations Team) to take 360-degree images of the various connected rooms that make up one of the operating theatres. With 360 photography everything is "in-shot", so there was much hopping in and out of rooms to ensure everyone was out of shot. The team involved were great and made the experience a good one especially as Aaron was feeling a little out of his depth wearing green scrubs!
Aaron utilised the Roundme platform to create and host the 360-degree tour which enables the linking together of multiple 360-degree images and the creating of portals and hotspots. Easy sharing of created content is offered through embed codes.
