Welcome to the world of 360 video! It’s virtual reality without needing goggles. If you watch this video from your smart phone, tablet, you will feel like you’re there by simply holding your phone up and turning your body around to see our world around you. If you’re on a computer, only Google Chrome will allow you to view this properly but it’s seriously cool! It works the same way that Street View does when you’re on Google Maps! Try it! It’s so cool! It’s even better if you have a good online connection.

Now that I have a better understanding of how this works, you’ll see a huge improvement in quality in my next one. Leave a comment below and tell me what you’d like to see me try next and SHARE THIS if you love it! The more views we get on this, the more we’ll be able to spend on future videos! Everyone wins when we share. 🙂

Thank you GCI for the awesome internet! Today’s video took 30 minutes to upload. Remember how I said a fast online connection is important? GCI kicks butt here in Alaska.
