We all have moments we wish could last forever: holidays you don't want to end, wedding days you wish you could re-live, children's birthday parties, baby's first steps… the list is endless. But while time travel isn't quite on the cards yet, there is a way to capture moments as they happen in their full 360 degree splendour, meaning you (or an absent loved one) can literally live the moment again, even without a time machine in sight. And the experience is pretty amazing!
Here at HELLO! we've had a lot of fun with Samsung's Gear 360 camera, which has allowed us to live stream some of our encounters with our celebrity friends, and make all our viewers around the world feel like they were there too.
Celebrities aside, if you're planning to hit the festival circuit or take a once-in-a-lifetime holiday you'll definitely want the Samsung Gear 360 in your suitcase. With this impressive piece of kit you'll be able to capture videos that show the entire scene rather than just what's happening directly in front of you. Cue dreamy panoramic beach shots or epic photos from the centre of a festival crowd that will make you the envy of all your friends.
Often associated with extreme sports, 360⁰ cameras are actually just as suitable to capture the action on the dancefloor at a party as they are on a skydive. With this camera you'll be able to take high-quality photos and videos, all of which can be quickly and easily live streamed to a social platform to let your friends and family join in the fun too. Better still, it's all packaged in one small, lightweight and easy-to-grip camera that's easy to carry around on all your adventures throughout this summer and beyond.
Another new device high on our love list is the Samsung VR + Controller, which immerses you in an array of incredible adventures and virtual worlds, all from the comfort of your own home. You can take your pick from over 4,000 360⁰ videos on Samsung VR, or even hang out with your friends using the incredibly clever social features. The new controller is even more immersive than ever, and with premium content from the likes of Warner Bros and CNN, you'll have adventures unlike anything you've experienced before.
