360 Degree Videos Vs Virtual Reality Vs Augmented Reality

I keep talking to people about the cultural revolution that is coming soon in virtual reality.

People have questions about the different technologies so I have put together some basic definitions of terms and examples of 360 degree videos, virtual reality, and augmented reality:

360 degree videos --- Using a 360 degree camera to capture all angles of a situation to allow viewers to completely immerse themselves and replicate the experience of being there.

YouTube and FaceBook just started allowing people to upload 360 degree videos.  

Example of a 360 degree video:

Time Couch - VR Demo by StressLevelZero


I’ve captured a few more examples here:

Examples of 360 Cameras being sold today or in the near future:

360 degree videos are cool when seen on a two dimensional monitor, but the real power of these will be evident when virtual reality goggles are being sold.

Virtual reality mimics a user’s natural view of the world because it completely covers the eyes and the images move as the user moves his head.

Here’s examples of some of the most exciting companies developing virtual reality hardware and software that we know about today:

Augmented Reality --- Similar to Virtual Reality, but the user sees the real world and has computer graphics overlaid over top of reality.

Good examples:

Microsoft HoloLens

To view the 360 degree experience please make sure you are watching on the latest version of Google Chrome on your desktop or the latest version of Android on your smart phone. This feature is in the prerelease phase on YouTube. Please bear with me as we learn the technology from filming to post production. The camera companies, myself, post production software companies and YouTube have all been working together on trying give you some insane content with the latest in technology. Thanks for your understanding in this learning curve. Other browser support and iOS should be available soon before the official launch.

Other note: My cameras don’t film full spherical. I had to literally 3D print a housing to try and line the cameras up enough to stitch for the full spherical experience. I wasn’t paid to create these videos and it cost a lot to produce so I at least wanted to share what I learned. Over the next couple months you will be blown away with what I create after having learned from this experience. Thanks again for all your support!!!
