HTC teases 360 degree video capture and squeeze gestures

It’s not much of a secret that HTC is working on hardware gestures for its upcoming HTC U 11 flagship device, including a way to squeeze the sides of the phone to interact with it. It’s a very cool concept, but I think it’s safe to say we’re all interested in actually seeing it in action before deciding on how valuable it is.

Anyway, HTC’s Twitter is once again teasing the squeezable hardware, but this time by bringing 360-degree video capture into the mix. The previous teasers really only mentioned that you could squeeze the device, but not what you’ll get out of doing it. Apparently there will be at least one squeeze gesture that will help you capture video all around you, although the logistics of that are still very, very fuzzy.

This is a really small teaser, but HTC is set to unveil their new phone in just a few days, so we don’t have to wait much longer to see what the big deal is. I’m just hoping it goes over a bit better than the U Ultra did.
