The world has gone through its selfie stage, and the fad has faded from the headlines on the news. Are you ready for the 360-degree camera selfie renaissance? Are you ready to take pictures of not just you attempting to break your neck, but also your friends laughing at your misfortune? Are you ready to capture your face and the ground in unison as you bungee jump to your near death? How much fun would it be to tightrope walk between buildings with it all captured in 360-degree video?

The 360-degree camera technology has progressed along enough that you can find devices in the $350 - $500 range. This is a far cry from the $10,000 initial offerings a few years ago. How were the camera developers able to lower the price so significantly in such a short amount of time? By using lenses designed for smartphone camera use and the lower price for those due to the immense volume sold. Smartphone cameras can be procured for as little as $1.

Are you ready for the 360-degree camera revolution? The price is right!

Once people discover spherical videos, research suggests, they shift their viewing behavior quickly. The company Humaneyes, which is developing an $800 camera that can produce 3-D spherical images, says people need to watch only about 10 hours of 360آ° content before they instinctively start trying to interact with all videos. When you see 360آ° imagery that truly transports you somewhere else, you want it more and more.
