360 Degree Video - Exploring An Ice Fishing Hole in Spring Lake, Minnesota #360DegreeVideo #IceFishing #VR

We went ice fishing with our good friend, Dan Walters in Spring Lake, Minnesota and brought along our new 360Fly 4K video camera. Since it's water proof, I asked Dan to stick it down in the ice hole to discover what we'd see. I thought the results were pretty cool. Even after Dan had a cramp and dropped my new camera!

Google Earth VR is the Most Mind Blowing Virtual Reality Experience I've Had To Date! #VR #HTCVive #VirtualReality

Introducing Google Earth VR, our next step to help the world see the world. With Earth VR, you can fly over a city, stand at the edge of a mountain, and even soar into space. Google Earth VR is available now on Steam for the HTC Vive. Learn more at

Wow!  This is cool.

For those of you who know me, you've heard me rave about my experiences with virtual reality since I bought an HTC Vive a few months ago.   I think it's the best experience on the market and it just keeps getting better and better.

Today was the best.  Google released an app for Google Earth VR and it is mind blowing.  Tonight, I was sitting in the middle of my living room but it felt like I was flying all over the world including Paris, New York City, San Francisco, and perhaps weirdest of all for me, directly in front of my childhood home. 

I floated all around Niagra Falls, the great pyramids in Egypt, and Devil's Tower in Wyoming.  It was very surreal and I stayed up an hour past my bed time enjoying it.  If you haven't experienced the HTC Vive yet, make arrangements to do so and check this out.  You will be amazed!
