Samsung's Gear 360 Lets Anyone Shoot 360-Degree Video

Is this the boost that 360-degree video has been waiting for?

By //Tech

Its simple spherical form sports two ultra-wide lenses on either side with a 195-degree field of view, which shoot 30 megapixel spherical photos and 3840×1920 pixel resolution videos that are stitched after the fact in a companion app. Geared for simplicity, there are only three buttons on the gadget itself, and all media is stored on the widely-accessible microSD card format.
