Thanks for accepting our invitation to explore the new page type HOTSPOT - a module for non-linear stories and interactive play inside panoramic images & videos.

Scroll down and see the whole width of this beautiful background image by moving your mouse left or right.

There are 3 types of Hotspots: 
Internal links to other pages, Audiofiles that are being played within a visible player, and external links, to credit sources or give further information at the end. 

You can built as many Hotspots as you want. To get the best results, make sure to team-up with designers.

Scroll down to see the Hover image we built.

The 3rd layer can be used for the "Visited image". It indicates, if a Hotspot already has been visited.

Just to give you an example of how you can modify your Hover image to a second version, we have made a version with less opacity.

As you can see, it's not raining. And it won't. But this is another setting in another mood. This page is also made, to explain the concept of areas. 

Scroll down and see that a simple filter used by one of the pics can change a lot. And there are two links to different chapters set, if you rather want to leave this storyline.

Aubade: Some Peaches, After Storm

Fullscreen

Carl Phillips, 1959

So that each
is its own, now--each has fallen, blond stillness.
Closer, above them,
the damselflies pass as they would over water,
if the fruit were water,
or as bees would, if they weren’t
somewhere else, had the fruit found
already a point more steep
in rot, as soon it must, if
none shall lift it from the grass whose damp only
softens further those parts where flesh
goes soft.

There are those
whom no amount of patience looks likely
to improve ever, I always said, meaning
gift is random,
assigned here,
here withheld--almost always
correctly
as it’s turned out: how your hands clear
easily the wreckage;
how you stand--like a building for a time condemned,
then deemed historic. Yes. You
will be saved.

Please notice:
All video spots must
be rectangular

Imagine the markable
areas as a grid. Then
think about a projector.
A flat screen in straight 
point of view works fine!

Scroll down and find the Hover video.

This part is about connecting Videos and Hotspots.

As an example we took a closer look into the world of bees. If you want to get deeper into this, you can listen to a podcast about the behavior of the honey bees and pollination. Or you take the trip back to the western setting? You decide. Just scroll.

Honey Bee Macro by Karunakar Rayker

Bees range in size from tiny stingless bee species whose workers are less than 2 millimetres (0.08 in) long, to Megachile pluto, the largest species of leafcutter bee, whose females can attain a length of 39 millimetres (1.54 in).

The most common bees in the Northern Hemisphere are the Halictidae, or sweat bees, but they are small and often mistaken for wasps or flies. Vertebrate predators of bees include birds such as bee-eaters; insect predators include beewolves and dragonflies.

Human beekeeping or apiculture has been practised for millennia, since at least the times of Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece. Apart from honey and pollination, honey bees produce beeswax, royal jelly and propolis.

Bees have appeared in mythology and folklore, again since ancient times, and they feature in works of literature as varied as Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Mrs Tittlemouse, W. B. Yeats's poem The Lake Isle of Innisfree, and Laline Paull's The Bees.

Bee larvae are included in the Javanese dish botok tawon, where they are eaten steamed with shredded coconut.
