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 Monday and Tuesday. 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.
It might be quite some time before I get over looking at adorable puppies in 360° videos. This short video by 360 Thrill is the best puppy video yet. Feel free to loop and watch over and over again, as I did yesterday.
Martynas is a master of the accordion. This is quite the impressive performance he did for the camera with very little notice.
I still can’t tell whether Hyundai used actual footage, animation, or both. All I know is the Tucson Experience was a joy to watch, even for those not into automobiles.
Whether you are watching this from an Oculus Rift, Gear VR, or Google Cardboard, you will want to go to the website linked on the title and picture to download the stereoscopic version. It’s night and day difference from the monoscopic 2d version. If this gives any idea of the amazingness you are about to experience, the video creator was Creative Director at Autofuss and Google. I’ll just quote the next part from the developers linked site as it is extremely important for those who have epilepsy.
Photosensitive epilepsy warning
Set to dynamic EDM glitch-hop beat of Drop the Panic by demoscene musician h0ffman, Prismatic features strobing lights and potentially disorienting visuals. If you have history of photosensitive epilepsy or experience discomfort, dizziness, nausea or headache, please turn it off as soon as possible. The rest of you – enjoy the (light) show.
Louis Cole is a YouTube Vlogger with over 1.5 million subscribers, and one that is also not annoying, which is a huge plus in my books. He takes you to Grand Teton National Park with his two friends. The hang out in the lake, take a short hike (can you spot the Chipmunks?), and jump from a cliff into the freezing cold water. I look forward to his future videos.
