Yellowbird 6 lens 360 degree video camera creates web-based interactive 3-D videos

Update 6/4/10:   Take a look at the new Yellowbird 360 degree demo reel video on the following post: http://interactivemultimediatechnology.blogspot.com/2010/06/interactive-360-degree-video-demo-reel.html


Harry Brignull, who blogs at 90% of Everything, has an interesting video taken at what looks like an electronic music festival - "Ever wondered what it's like to be trapped in a crowd of 600,00 Dutch clubbers?"


THIS IS JUST THE PICTURE


You will need to visit Harry's blog to explore and pan around the video.

“By using a Google Streetview-like camera, a system with six lenses, not as a photo but as a video camera, an all-encompassing picture is captured. [...] From the point where the images were recorded, the viewer can look in any direction, let his eyes wander through the crowd, or stare at the ground or the air, which makes viewing a video an experience without boundaries.” -

The Gear in Action


If I can find additional examples of Yellowbird videos, I will post them here. They are easy to work with a touch-screen. I bet these videos would be great on SmartBoards or other interactive displays.

By the way, Harry Brignull blogs about "Experience Design, User Research & Good Old Fashioned Usability"
