Well it looks like the speed at which 360 videos are being uploaded is finally at the point where we may not have to pull a Mega Daily Dose again. In today’s Daily Dose, we look at a creepy video of Chernobyl, catch up on some 4th of July fireworks, explore an entertaining YouTube channel with panoramas, and more.
You will need a PC/Phone running Google Chrome Browser, or you can open these videos on the iOS & Android YouTube app. Use WASD or Mouse on PC to interact. On phones, just move your phone around as if you are looking around inside the video. If you have a Google Cardboard or Gear VR (thanks to this recent news), you can view with the headsets which enhance the experience dramatically.

First, the video is not in English, but it does provide a really unique perspective on a place most of us will never get to experience. Being there with a VR headset on is quite the unsettling feeling.
The World Games is an event that follows the Olympics the year after it finishes every 4 years. This is the first of many videos to come, that will only increase in quality.
If you missed out on the fireworks, no need to fret. There were a few other fireworks videos in 360°, but this was the only one in 4k resolution.
The ladies will like this video a lot. Space Tailor is a 360° Media Production company, and their previous work is no joke. I look forward to seeing what these guys come up with next.
Warren Spector had some less than positive things to say about Virtual Reality recently. He should definitely check out this video to get an idea of what it might look like in Virtual Reality. Rather than a video, it’s a collection of panoramic photos with music playing overhead from the game. Also available from the same channel is the Half-Life 2 Panoramic.
I really want to go to this place now! It’s an aquarium with an automatic track moving you through it. Perfect for 360° filming.
Sure, it’s a promotional video for Liquid Productions, but I just had to finally put it on here. Go from the living room to soaring over a town to outer space.
