Boeing has taken online interactive technology into the 787 Dreamliner with its "Dream Pass" that allows you to actively control through 360 degrees the view from an in-cockpit virtual jump seat as a crew takes off flies and lands the jet. The technology allows you to scroll 360 degrees around the cockpit, looking where you like, including up and down, while the video plays with narration. In other words, the technology effectively offers real-time control of the viewing angle over a 360-degree panoramic pre-recorded video. As the jet lands at Boeing Field Seattle, the "pilot commentary" advises you to look left at the city's skyline, which comes into view, clearly, if you pan left. Another audio option provides "in-flight audio" through the flight. The tour offers exterior fuselage, wing and engine views as well.
