Facebook will begin testing live 360-degree video with Martian cosplayers
Facebook is introducing 360-degree video into its live broadcasting product, starting tomorrow with a broadcast from National Geographic from the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah. At 3PM ET tomorrow, eight scientists will emerge from 80 days of isolation and it will all be captured in 360 degrees. Who is going to tell them about the election???The research station is funded by the Mars Society, a group devoted to making that planet habitable in the likely event that we destroy this one. Since September, a group of scientists has apparently been living inside pods in Utah researching what total isolation from humanity feels like. Not that much different than living in Utah, we would imagine.
