360 Video

360-degree videos are recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time, shot using an omnidirectional camera or by stitching together a series of videos. The immersion factor of 360 videos is what makes them quite innovative as it allows users to watch real places to a fuller extent without requiring a bulk of technology. 360 videos are now able to be made right from your own phone! More and more videos are gradually integrating 360 viewing options as time goes by, so the uses are still to be explored further beyond just tourism.
