Google – Performing Arts

We are absolutely blown away by this initiative from Google. Using their 360 degree camera technology (which we’re sure you’re aware of thanks to Google Maps and Streetview), they have set up never-before-seen points of view that allow people to witness dance, theatre and music from angles no normal people has yet seen.

Not only is each video viewable through 360 degrees, they have multiple viewpoints, allowing you to really get into the action and see what people are doing.

We’ve shown some examples from a performance of In The Hall Of The Mountain King (you may not recognise the name of the piece, but you’ll definitely recognise it once you hear it). We do strongly, strongly suggest though that you put on your headphones and visit the site here

It will change the way you see things forever!

Google+ & Manchester United – The Front Row Story

This campaign from Google+ and Manchester United is just amazing. It takes everything we love about technology and branding and throws it all together in one beautiful story.

In short, fans could watch a live Manchester United soccer match through Google+ hangouts, as if they were sitting in the front row at Old Trafford. But when you see how they took it one step further and broadcast fan reactions onto the digital billboards around the field, you can’t help but smile.

A brilliant idea, brilliantly executed. More of this please!
