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 Mega Daily Dose, which hopefully won’t be around much longer, we take a look at the top videos over the course of the weekend. 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.
Please click the picture or title to be brought to each video.
It’s no wonder that a small business inventive enough to bring out a 4k 360° well done video would have the coolest thing I have seen in quite some time. I somehow missed this when it was uploaded on July 9th, but it’s a center that has a gigantic human sized foosball table. I can’t believe I didn’t see this place when I lived in St. Louis, Missouri! There are other cool attractions highlighted in the video.
Double Feature From AltPresence
I just had to include both of these wonderful videos from AltPresence that popped up on both Littlstar and Vrideo. The first one is not for those with weak stomachs, but extremely cool as you are in the sky as animated jet fighters zoom past you. In the second video, which btw ends at the 1 minute mark, you get a bird eyes view of the earth and then enter the atmosphere, witnessing a ton of meteors drop down on you. It’s quite something to see with a VR headset on.
If you don’t know Verest and you like some sexy dance in 360°, we had an article covering their offerings. They were the only game in town, until other popular K-Pop group uploaded a video of EXID performing on stage that just might give the Verest videos a run for their money. The only qualms I had about this video was the sound, which is quite muffled. But that’s not what you came in for anyways.
Yellowstone National Park is one of the most unique looking places on Earth, and now people from around the world can feel like they are there in this professionally done video by National Geographic Wild. There was another Yellowstone video made by a family on a trip there, but unfortunately it was only in 1080p and the camera was quite shaky.
Every now and then I like to get my classical culture on, and this is the first high quality opera footage that has appeared in 360°. It’s not in English, but good none the less. Unlike the 2 hour long play posted by The Guardian, the camera is set in the right place, front row center.
