The Best Virtual 360° Video Collection
360° video is a new video format that is highly interactive and immersive. Be expected, that we will be seeing more and more 360° being released in the near future. It won't be long before major brands catching up with the virtual reality trend and start making their own.
In the future, people like you and I will be able to record 360° videos on the fly. With portable, compact and easily affordable 360° video recording devices such as GoPro, Ricoh Theta and LucidCam being rolled out in mainstream consumer market, it's safe to say, that 360° video will be the new standard for video recording, live action capturing and video sharing format!
You don't have to like it, but you can't deny it. Another proof that 360° video is going to be the new standard, at least across major social media platform, is that Youtube and Facebook both openly made official announcement about the on-site playback compatibility and support for the new video format!
We have seen a burst of 360° videos across Youtube and various websites. Here is a list of some of our favorite 360° videos. We intended to make this list an ever growing and expanding video collection, we hope you'll enjoy them as much as we do, and feel free to suggest any 360° video that you've discovered on the web, the ones that we might have missed. Cheers and enjoy!

Tomorrowland 2014 | 360 Degrees of Madness

Kasabian O2 Academy Brixton 360 Video
This one is one of my favorite 360° video in this collection! You can see the crowd rubbing shoulders with each other, some guys were fighting, and people were crowd surfing and got fiercely dragged down by pissed off securities ( my favorite highlight @ 2:00 facing the stage! )
If I was there, I will be in the mosh pit area! You simply cannot feel this heated vibe and actual presence in 2D videos, this is exactly why 360 videos will prevail and dominate in the future!

Noa Neal ‘Graffiti’ 4K 360° Music Video

As you can see, virtual 360 would provide a more profound and immersive viewing experience. The technology is bound to change the game and raise the bar for video promos for many industries. Take tourism for example, when we were watching the music festival 360 videos, it really made us want to buy a flight ticket immediately and be there in person because we can truly feel the exciting vibe of the music festival!
The virtual 360 videos could be used as a powerful marketing tool to pitch and sell travel package, festival pass or anything that you could possibly imagine!
