Zuckerberg Shares 360 Video

Know someone named “Zuckerberg”? Well, he has one of the biggest followings on Facebook, and he’s shared a short 360 degree video of his daughter Max’s first steps and his dog, Beast.

Zuckerberg goes on to underline the importance of virtual reality and 360 tech by citing an example of how each generation recorded important moments like a child’s first steps – writing in a journal, recording on regular, old video and pictures, and now through 360 degree video captures.

Readers might have noticed the increasing number of 360 degree media on Facebook, and that’s not a one-off trial for a new type of media – it’s definitely here to stay. Facebook is also a very big investor in Oculus, one of the world’s foremost purveyors of PC-based VR headsets. From serious hardware like the Oculus Rift, to sharing a simple video of his child’s first steps, it’s further proof of VR’s increasing importance as a new media form.
