  • YouTube has announced a new format for VR videos called VR180 made in collaboration with Google’s Daydream team. This has been designed to make it easy for content creators to create immersive 3D and VR experiences. Unlike 360 degree video, VR180 only has 180 degree field of view. Users can wear VR glasses to look around while facing forward but you can’t look back for additional field of view, which for most purposes wound’t be a problem. If you wear VR glasses, you can also experience the video n 3D. If you choose not to wear glasses, the VR180 video appears just like a regular 2D video. VR180 works with Google Cardboard, Daydream, Gear VR and PSVR. It also supports live streaming. For content creators, there wouldn’t be need for any special equipment or editing tools for making VR180 videos. However, YouTube is working with camera manufacturers like YI, Lenovo, and LG for special VR180 cameras that make best use of the format and are also cheaper than 360 degree cameras. Right ..

  • You may have lived thus far while thinking that the most important question one could ask about a smartphone was "Will it blend?". But apparently you were wrong. "Will it fry?" is much more relevant we're told - at least in Scotland. So what are some enterprising chaps from Glasgow to do then? Naturally, coat the Galaxy S8 in authentic Scottish chip shop batter mix, and then place it into an electric fryer (with oil preheated to 200 degrees Celsius). The phone was left in there for a total of 60 seconds, and you can see what came out in the video below, which documents the whole ordeal. Perhaps surprisingly, the Galaxy S8 still works after being subjected to such a treatment. It's not all perfect, though - the sole area of the phone that wasn't covered in batter (because it's the part The Fryer was holding with his glove) has a gold shine when the screen is off and a yellow cast when it's on. Additionally, the fingerprint sensor is pretty much toast. Otherw..
