Samsung Gear 360 a neat new tool

We're finally about to enter the realm of virtual reality: the technology has been growing for a while, but it will finally mature into mainstream products in 2016. So how do you create videos and images for this new virtual reality world? Well, simple: you need a 360-degree camera, and Samsung's new Gear 360 is a neat new tool to help you do just that.

Equipped with two 195-degree cameras that overlap, the Gear 360 captures 360 photos and videos (at nearly 4K resolution) by combining the videos from the two on-board cameras. This smart collage happens on your phone and the camera is compatible with Samsung's top-end devices that are capable of taking this load: the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge +, Note 5, Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
