Casey Neistat took Samsung’s Gear 360 to the Oscars


There’s no better way to build up excitement for a device than by incorporating it into some historic moment, and that’s exactly what Samsung did with the Gear 360. Casey Neistat took Samsung’s 360 degree camera to the Oscars just a few days ago and managed to capture Leonard DiCaprio’s first ever win for his role in The Revenant, all in 360 degree video.

And, of course, it got uploaded to YouTube, which also shows off YouTube’s ability to play 360 degree videos. Watching it in a normal YouTube window is a little weird, since it basically just looks like a distorted fish-eye angle, but if you have a browser capable of watching it in surround video, it’s worth checking out.
