360 Degrees, Live!

Facebook has combined two forms of media into one real-time, immersive experience with Live 360. To start off, Facebook has cooperated with National Geographic to show the experience of “space scientists” in the Mars Desert Research Station facility in Utah, USA.

Live 360.pngThese scientists are simulating everything they can about what they would experience in an actual mission in Mars, including the sheer isolation of such a mission – only this time, we get to share in the experience as it unfolds.

It seems to me this is in line with Facebook’s commitment to panoramic or 360 degree tech, which is after all not all that far removed from VR, which Facebook has a huge stake in in the form of Oculus.
