Sure, selfies are here to stay. After all, everyone loves a bit of camwhoring now and then (and in some cases, frequently). But as gadgets and technology continue to churn out one amazing innovation after another, the humble selfie is bound to get a major upgrade.
Enter the "surroundie" - a phenomenon born from the advent of 360-degree angle cameras. The term itself was coined by Ben Wood, a CCS insight analyst who recognized the revolutionary capacity of 360 degree cameras to contribute to even better content creation.
Now, cameras can go beyond the conceit of selfies and putting one's self above all else in social media content. The "surroundie" allows even more exploration and better curating of what people can see and learn online. Events, news, discoveries, and even everyday living can be better viewed, thanks to both Facebook and YouTube's support of 360 degree content.
I Am Cardboard is proud to offer Orbit 360 in all its panoramic glory. Aside from capturing group selfies (we do call it the "ultimate selfie enabler"), we believe this nifty little tool can go on adventures and help capture the sights like no other straight-shooting camera could on its own. And, as we mentioned in a previous article called "How Will Your Career Benefit From 360-Degree Panorama", photography, tourism, architecture, lifestyle blogging, and a host of other careers will find the "surroundie" a much-needed tool for marketing, sales, and advertising.
And really, what a waste of great technology if we continue to use it on our faces alone, right?
