360 video Can't Post

Just found this innovative technology to view videos, which I wanted to show you. It's this 360 video where you can look around the environment while watching.

Have a look here:

This is what I hope cinema's are like in 30+ years time [In reply to] Can't Post

Can you imagine sitting in the middle of a 360 screen, watching the film unfold all around you! The Battle of the Five Armies would look tremendous! Laugh

Thanks for the link Chopsta. Smile

@Daniel - that would be a nightmare for filmmakers ;D but if cinemas have trouble bringing 48fps to the crowd, I cant imagine 360 being implemented anytime soon. Its more for the web.
