…CNN puts you in the middle of the action?

To help us understand and experience what’s going on in Haiti as they recover from the devastating earthquake that destroyed Port-au-Prince recently, CNN is using 360° cameras to capture footage that can then be manipulated by the viewer, allowing you to pan and zoom around the scene as if you were there.

In the future, I’d like to think that Hollywood will find some way of integrating this technology into the way that they make movies, putting the audience right into the middle of the action and allowing you to focus on whatever grabs your attention.

Can you imagine what Jurassic Park or Black Hawk Down would be like if they were shot like this?
