Re: 360 video since... 1994?
Haha me too! Only if something really catches my eye and I see it on my Twitter or Facebook feed.

Re: 360 video since... 1994?
From another side of things: so according to this well-reasoned article by someone who appears to know what he is talking about, the human eye's resolution is about 480 megapixels.  Applying the same formulae as I did for the physical limits,  the Indistinguishable from Real to the Naked Eye screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio would be about 29212 X 16432. Using that silly K designation, which I'm beginning to hate as I look at how many things it hides, that would be 29K, but I betcha they round up rather than down to 30K, or maybe even to a power of 2 and call it 32K.


That's probably more like the real limit. Figuring we seem to go about a rough doubling of resolution per tech generation, and we're just really deploying 4K now with a tiny bit of 8K in very expensive applications, at a rough guess all resolution competition will be over in 3 more generations of screens beyond 4K.  Pure guess, by 2025 at earliest, 2035 at latest.  At that point resolution will be effectively not anything to compete about again.

Re: 360 video since... 1994?
Addendum I meant to put in: the actualy physical resolution as good as reality would imply you could, for example, hold up a magnifiying glass to the screen and have the image stay just as clear (in fact you could put it under a microscope and, I suppose, look at the bacteria on an actor's skin, or at structures inside the mitochondria inside each cell ....

At which point you'd be spending all your time wondering if you'd been living inside a simulation all along.

Re: 360 video since... 1994?
@mhhf1ve Nowadays I only end up watching local news, which is channel 12 where I live when I'm stuck in a doctor's or dentist's or my car dealer's waiting room, and it happens to be on. Otherwise, I get news online or listen on the radio for a bit while driving.

Who really still watches the "news at 11" anymore? :P I only watch when the local news is either covering something in my neighborhood or if YouTube has caught a local news blooper that's gone viral.

@mhhf1ve Intersting. I hadn't thought of that. Back in the last century when I watched the news on TV, I recall closeups of the anchor person. I haven't thought about the difference in camera angles now.

Re: Exciting
Before live sporting events are broadcast in VR, I'd be willing to bet that first, VR video games will be broadcast as they are played. The popularity of LetsPlay YouTube and Twitch might beat live sports to the VR arena.

Re: 360 video since... 1994?
Ariella, I think that concern was a somewhat significant worry for the on-air talent of local TV news anchors. Close ups of a person reading the news or describing the local weather wasn't necessarily a benefit. I think they've mostly avoided these concerns by re-designing news studios so that presenters are farther away from the camera at a nicer-looking table.

Exciting
This is really exciting, and interestingly enough a topic we had talked about not too long ago. With the ratings declining for live viewership of sporting events, there needs to be something new and exciting to appeal to fans enough to make time for sporting events when they are happening. Being able to see the game from any angle they want would definitely meet the criteria for that appeal. I'm not even the biggest sports fan and even I think that would be exciting.
