360° media refers to immersive content, such as images, videos, or interactive experiences, that captures a full view of the surrounding environment in all directions, allowing viewers to navigate and explore the content from any angle using compatible devices like VR headsets or web browsers.
During the bootcamp, we provide an introduction to 360° media and using a consumer-level 360° camera. 360° photos and video are a powerful extension of the traditional 2D space. They introduce a novel and unique level of interactivity and immersion and have the power to increase, among others, engagement, and empathy. We will provide you with a high-quality consumer-level camera to become familiar with the technology and collect photos and videos. We also cover working with software and understanding hosting solutions.
