In Daily Dose 360, we look at the best 360° videos of the day from across the internet. We will now only highlight the top 5 videos of the day in Daily/Mega Daily Dose 360 post on the blog. In today’s Mega Daily Dose, which hopefully won’t be around much longer, we take a look at the top videos from the past few days. For this Mega Daily Dose, MINI automobile company thinks outside the box with some great short films.
We resort to Mega Daily Dose 360s when the amount of content is not enough to justify a Daily Dose 360 from the day. Our Twitter and YouTube Playlist will have far more videos, and the other videos will still be added to The 360 Video Directory. Keep in mind we wipe clean the YouTube playlist every Sunday night, to make room for next week’s videos. Be sure to follow us on Twitter @dailydose360 for updates throughout the day of the best 360 videos right as they hit the internet!
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. Oculus Rift users will need to use Virtual Desktop and can view the YouTube videos by pasting the url into the video tab of Virtual Desktop. If the videos are from Vrideo, you can access them using the beta version of Chrome.
Please click the picture or title to be brought to each video.
Yet another video comes out without 360 in the title, but we eventually caught you. Someone modeled a virtual club in Unity with semi holograms of a band playing on stage. Incredibly impressive.
No, this is not a strip club. It’s just how they party in Moscow, Russia.
Many automobile companies have come out with videos focused entirely on the car. MINI, thinking outside the box, brought out two outstanding shorts that show the car at the beginning but then dive into full on short films. Real Memories follows a man as he tries to recreate memories of an event that happened, and includes time travel, and lots of drama.
MINI’s second short, Backwater takes a bit of a more violent angle than the previous short, and is much more action packed. I’ll leave it to you to find out what happens.
Prepare yourself for one of the first videos filmed with the new Google Jump technology. Yours for the low price of $15,000. This is a beautiful video of New York City that came out a few weeks ago.
