The New York Times is doing one of those 365 photo projects. Except it’s video, and it’s 360° video. And it’s pretty cool.
I am a believer in 360°, I think it will be the future. However, we need to get the bitrate compression better for the videos. Everything looks like crap.
You can check out the videos they’ve posted so far over at The Daily 360. The videos aren’t long, most seem to be under 1 minute. So you can dedicate that time to watching them and playing around. The video is curtsy of Samsung, and their Gear 360 camera. It’s quite nice to see this being given main stream appeal. Hopefully, like I said, it will bring costs down, and quality up.
