Last week, I was in Budapest for the first JSConf hosted there – and I wanted a way to relive the experience of being on stage in VR, so naturally, I took a photosphere of the stage as soon as I had a chance!
Without a photo sphere viewer, the picture is a little strange, but if you have a mobile VR headset, such as a Cardboard or GearVR, you can get your own sense of standing on the stage in the Urania Cinema! Simply download the photo to your phone and open up the Google Cardboard app, then choose ‘Photo Sphere’ as your option.
There was a bit of movement with people walking around, so it was hard to get a perfect shot, but I really like the idea of being able to capture moments in this way to come back to them later. It’s really something special to be able to relive moments the way you did when the photo was first taken.
