We’re a week away from the big day, and most people will be celebrating with family and friends. This Christmas, take advantage of having these people with you by recording a 360° video for posterity. Take my word for it, it’s probably the most immersive way of recording an event. I bought myself a small LG 360 camera a few years ago and used it to record a few clips between courses while we were sitting around the dinner table.
These cameras have lenses on front and back and record a true 360° view with no blind spots. You can upload these videos to Facebook which allows you to rotate around any part of the view. We’re currently enhancing our LifeStories software so that you can rotate the view as you rotate the iPad on which the LifeStory is running.
There is a range of these cameras on Amazon, but this one from Ricoh appears to be most popular.
You can set the camera up with your smartphone and place it in the middle of the table, and it will record everything that happens around you.
I know it sounds a bit geeky, but if you can get past that, you’ll thank me for it in 10 years time, when you’re looking at this really cool immersive video of how you were a decade ago.
