Droneboarding in 360

Remember that Casey Neistat holiday video I shared a couple of days ago?  (If not, go watch it now, I’ll wait here…)

Well, Casey has now shared the footage from the many Samsung 360° cameras that were used in the shoot, and the footage is impressive to say the least:

Do move your device to see what’s around. On many touch-screen devices, you can do this by sliding your finger across the screen as well.

There’s little doubt that 360° video has been one of the break-through technologies of 2016. I’m looking forward to producing content in this format for community launches and the like in 2017 – so much potential, but also plenty of opportunity for over-use too.

What do you think? Is 360° video a flash in the pan, or here to stay in a meaningful way?
