A 360° View of The F-35

This is a pretty good video that goes over some of the advanced features of the new fifth-generation fighter, the F-35:

It’s a nice video, the beginning of it doesn’t really merit a 360° video, but it’s still cool.  There’s alot of 35,000 foot type view information given of the different systems and how they work together on this $400 million aircraft.  The meat and potatoes comes towards the end when they simulate the view pilots have while they’re wearing the next-generation helmet which gives them all sorts of advantages in battle.  I think you should watch the full video, it’s pretty enlightening and proves how the USAF is at the forefront of design and development military might.

To the Edge of Space

Complete in full 360° glory!  Some crazy Russians (might not actually be Russians, but rather great Capitalists!) have attached a Samsung Gear 360 camera to the tail of a MiG as it flew into the stratosphere at speeds approaching Mach 2.  I will say, traveling at supersonic speeds is one of my all time dreams, and even though the clouds of this flight were boring, the knowledge that this type of trip is offered is enough to make me super excited for getting my own $20,000 together to try myself!.

Katmai

Bears walking

We’re at the last of my National Park’s for the Alaska trip, Katmai.  Famous for it’s bears and Brooks Falls.  However, we didn’t go to Brooks Falls though, we spent the time in the backcountry of the park looking for bears up Funnel Creek.  Unfortunately it was late in the year for that particular salmon run, we’d have to come back in a few weeks for the next one to start.  We still saw 5 different bears, all pretty far away though.

Here, watch this 360 video of it!

It’s Tornado Season.  Or it was, or it will be.  I’m never quite sure when Tornado Season actually is.  I just know that when it starts, it offers some pretty awesome videos, photos, and time-lapses of the storms as the make their way across the MidWest.  This year though is different.  It marks the beginning of easy to produce 360 video footage of these storms.  The above 2 videos show tornado’s up close in one, and driving by one in the other.

360° Sam’s Point

I took my 360° camera out for a hike yesterday.  The weather was nice, but it was very, very windy, so the audio wasn’t great except for wind noise.

Everest 360

Knife Edge

Mammut sponsored this trip up to the summit of Mount Everest with a pair of 360 camera rigs on two of the hikers.  This is the first time the trip up Everest has been documented in this way.  One rig took a photo every 30 seconds, while the other was on continuous recording.

The picture above is from the South Summit – at 28,700ft above sea level. Here, you can look around it if you’re really interested.

There’s no 360 video of it yet, at least not that I see, but here’s the Mammut promotional video:
