QuickTime VR creates an immersive, photorealistic experience simulating actual or imagined three-dimensional objects and places. Unlike other virtual reality implementations, QuickTime VR does not require special goggles or gloves, and it doesn’t need you to download a custom 3D plug-in to work with any application or web browser. All major applications that play QuickTime movies can also play QuickTime VR movies. There are two main types of QuickTime VR movies – QuickTime VR Panoramas and QuickTime VR Object Movies.

QuickTime VR first showed up in 1995.
