Video: Virtual off-road touring
The Nitto Trail Grappler Experience takes you out on the tracks even when you’re really stuck at home.
Nitto Tire in the USA has released a series of 360-degree virtual off-road touring videos for four-wheel drive enthusiasts who are sick of being stuck at home due to social distancing.
The videos, titled Trail Grappler Experience, are filmed with a special 360-degree camera mounted atop a Toyota 4Runner. They were filmed at: Fish Creek and Sandstone Canyon in Borrego Springs, California; Sand Hollow Reservoir Trail in Hurricane, Utah; Willow Creek Trail at Lake Arrowhead, California; Schnebly Hill and Broken Arrow in Sedona, Arizona; and Toquerville Falls at La Verkin, Utah.
While not exactly the same as getting out there in real life, the hi-res 360-degree 6k videos offer a unique perspective, providing an immersive track-driving experience that allows you to look all around the vehicle by simply moving your phone/tablet or using the mouse on a PC or Mac.
A series of outdoor soundtracks has been matched to the footage, so make sure you throw on a decent pair of headphones and crank the volume for the full effect.
