3 Ideas for a Virtual 360° Holiday Greeting

Andrew Beelitz

Want to send a special holiday greeting this year? We have three great ideas and five stunning photos that you can copy and remix to create your own!



Idea 1: A virtual xmas story 

Stand out from the stream and forget the formalities. Use music, sounds, narration and poetry to create your own 360 story about meeting the Santa Claus. In this first example you are walking in a snowy forest until you meet with Edgar Allan Poe and the Raven. You knock on the door of the green cottage, and step in to the Santa’s workshop in Korvatunturi, Finland. Look around and click the things you see in room.


Idea 2: Send a special thanks to or from your team

Make it personal with individual greetings or say something nice to each team member by adding notes or audio files in separate tags. This example below is a greeting from the ThingLink headquarters to the R&D team. Santa has left little gifts in the office that he thought could be useful at this time of the year.


Idea 3: Musical moment in the winter forest

This time of year can be hectic. The easiest way to create a 360 degree holiday greeting is to add your favorite xmas tune in the background of an image,and let your friends and family enjoy a joyful or peaceful moment in a beautiful winter forest with you. Add notes, photos, or audio greetings to make the experience more personal. 


Make your own Holiday cards!
