Amazing 360-degree F1 video

Ride with Sébastien Buemi in this fully controllable panoramic video. Incredible stuff…

For the first time since, well, last month, we feel like we're living in the actual future - prepare to be genuinely amazed by this fully controlled, immersive 360-degree video of Sébastien Buemi driving on Norway's Rudskogen Motorsenter circuit.

It's been shot using Making View's ViewCam 360, which has a spherical lens that records the action from every angle (apart from up). It's easy to master - just click your mouse or use the arrow keys on your keyboard and drag the cursor around to change the angle.

Now go and enjoy 200mph-plus in glorious sweep-o-vision. The future’s here, people. Now, what could we do with this technology? Your best ideas below...

 

Thanks to Making View for use of the video.

Now share it...
