I am so amazed with this technology called 360 camera. It is an new video technology and if you own a 360 camera, You will be able to upload a 360 video. When you say 360, You can see what is in front of the scene, what is on the sides and what is behind. The 2 minute video is just the wrestlers Zack Rider and Emma, Who were a dating couple riding a roller coaster. It is a simple video but it gives you an idea how a 360 camera works. You can swipe the video with your mouse so you can see different perspective of the scene. You can angle the video to the face of the dating couple or you can swipe the video to first person perspective and see how they see things. Heck you can even see what is behind them. I wonder if there are cellphones with 360 cameras. I can't believe such technology exists now. Imagine if you have a family member who can't attend a party, a 360 video or stream might make them feel they were there.
Join Zack Ryder and Emma on the roller coaster, Titan, at Six Flags over Texas for a thrilling 360° experience. On mobile? Move your device to experience thi...

I can't believe such technology exists now. We may not have the flying cars just like the 2015 of Back to the future 2. At least we have 360 videos now. Imagine someday there might be a 360 movie theater.

I previously have uploaded 360 camera app on my phone . But since i do not use it but my camera's phone , i uninstalled it . You can actually make yourself beautiful , they said on that app . But i prefer my real me , not the photoshopped one.

Making your self look pretty is not the purpose of 360 cameras though. its point is to capture what is behind you, what is in front of you and what is beside you.

I wonder if it's possible to make a 360 camera feature film where they will be able to hide the film crews.

Amazing. Sometimes this technology simply baffles me. I loved watching this video despite the fact that I am real scared of being on one of those roller coasters. However, this can be abused too by some bad guys... they can sneak in some place and send them such videos using this 360 technology... but then, arent there other tech stuff too that have been abused.

I am not sure how will a 360 format video will be used for a crime. I heard some 360 videos are interactive. As in they were compatible to virtual reality devices like the occulust rift.
