YouTube’s VR180 may be an attempt to promote the technology and take a step corporately toward preparing for when virtual reality goes mainstream. Using stereoscopic 3-D., the format renders 180 video with about 135 degree actual field of view. With no claims to providing an fully immersive VR experience, VR180 provides a remarkable sense of depth and size and is easy to use. YouTube executive Erin Teague explains the videos will look like any other video on the site with no need to pan around or reposition the phone. When users want the VR180 experience, all they need to do is pop in a Daydream headset and the footage will fill users’ field of view.
