Walkabout Worlds is an app that can enable you to create 3D models and walkthroughs using only a 360 camera.

Walkabout Worlds software enables you to create either a 3D model or 360 virtual walkthrough of a place using only a 360 camera.

3D MODELS
You can use Walkabout Worlds Panomodeller to turn a 360 photo into a full 3D model.  You can take a 360 photo and turn it into a 3D model in minutes.  You simply have to mark key points in your 360 photo.  The app then uses these points to calculate the height, width, depth and positions of walls and objects, turning your 360 photo into a 3D model.

Here is a sample of a 3D model made with Walkabout Worlds:

360 WALKTHROUGHS
Walkabout Worlds can also allow you to create 360-degree walkthroughs, similar to virtual tours, except that there will be shorter intervals between spaces, which gives the viewer a better sense of actually walking through the space.  You can check out some examples here.

Walkabout Worlds is scheduled to be available by the end of April.  The app is free, and you will be able to publish up to five 3D models or walkthroughs.  Beyond that, there is a small subscription fee.
