It’s Friday so we thought we’d put the controls in your hands and give you the 360* Experience aboard a Volvo 65 doing upwards of 15knots. How cool is that? VERY cool if you have Google Chrome as your browser and/ or an Android device. The rest of you will have to beg, borrow or steal to watch this. But it’s worth it.
You can actually control what you’re looking at in this video of Team SCA as they fly through the ocean, taking on waves and water and avoiding a heinous death roll. You can see and feel how hairy it is to drive in these conditions, and now you can decide which hairy view you want to look at by dragging your mouse in the video to alter the viewing angle. AWESOME! Check it out!
From Team SCA: This ground-breaking technique, puts you into the center of the sailing experience! You can look around in 360*, using the arrows or click & drag with your mouse / drag the screen on mobile. NOTE: The 360 experience is so far only enabled for Chrome browsers & Android mobile devices
