Ok, you are right ^_^
Surely with Canvas (WebGL) can be created perfectly virtuals tours. I'll try
to do some testing and I will comment on results.

Rik good link ;), but would have to test how it behaves Canvas (WebGL) with

By the way, what label should be used to indicate this type of media?.

Thanks group, You are very kind and geniuses.
