I'm sure you've all seen VR images (google maps street view is a decent example), If you haven't here's a link to VR tour of an airplane cockpit.
Now what you may not know, some smart tech geeks have figured out how to take this technology and apply it to video.
Although it's being used in a few places, mostly sporting events, a new website called all360poker.com has started the initiative of posting full 360 degree VR video from a camera placed directly above the center of some of the poker tables at the WPT Bellagio $25k championships.
The site has over a dozen streaming videos, with plans for high-quality downloadable videos to come soon. The camera uses a bunch of coordinated lenses and is operated by a logitech gaming controller.
We've got a sample of the video below as well as a bunch of photos we took of the actual camera in action at the WPT at Bellagio today.
