How to Shoot 360-Degree VR Content on Your Smartphone

September 21, 2016 5:00 am

If you want a new form of technology to catch on quickly with a wide audience, you need to keep it simple (or at least, make it seem simple for users). Although 360-degree capture devices have been largely limited to virtual reality obsessives, Spincle‘s new app seems poised to put that notion to bed. The app allows its users to shoot panoramic-like content from the comfort of their own smartphone.

The Spincle app is also unique thanks to the fact that it offers a photo/video amalgam that turns certain aspects of the panorama into a video, while the rest remains a static image. (This allows for a 360-degree video to still have some context.)
