Backwater: A 360° Cinematic Virtual Reality Experience

 So Mini (yes the car company) put out a short film/virtual reality experience that has a lot of people talking.  The concept is a movie where the viewer can see 360° of the environment.  I took the time to watch it, (it's recommended that you watch it on the youtube app of a smartphone for the effect) and I was fairly entertained.  The whole idea is awesome, and being able to feel like you are actually in the film is crazy! Unfortunatly, the storyline to this short film wasn't too good.  However, I could see this technology pushing TV shows and movies in a great direction.  Check it out below!
