This is a really lovely way to show the process that Panera Bread uses to get the freshest bread possible to you. I love the animation style and how the message gets across.

Well here is another one from Illy coffee that explores the world of coffee with a dude called Gabriele, who travels the world to “Couch Surf”, meeting people telling his stories over a coffee, all in the pursuit of happiness. Ok… The only problem with this explosion of parallax sites is that many are using the technology as an idea. It’s NOT an idea, it’s an execution.
Beck reimagines David Bowies “Sound and Vision” with 160 musicians, as a fully immersive 360 degree interactive experience via the Lincoln Motor Company.
