On the heels of iBooks Author‘s introduction last month, we’re starting to see tools emerge that support the creation of specialized embeddable widgets. The video that follows showcases Panotour Pro’s virtual 3D tours, which can be exported to widget form and then included into your iBooks project.

Although we haven’t been able to try the technology out yet ourselves, we think interactive tour widgets will provide a great feature for many titles such as travel books, how-to presentations (think laying out a kitchen for a design book), and so forth. Panotour Pro costs 299 euros (357.60 euros with taxes).

Thanks, Niels Vanspauwen
