Google Cardboard Camera

☀☀☀☀☀ The Google Cardboard Camera is onto something great. Its new app helps the user stitch a panoramic photo together for an almost 360-degree view. You can’t yet use it to shoot 360 video, but you can capture sound to complement the high-quality picture. It’s not true 360, more like a panorama shot that goes around in the circle. You can’t look up or down; the app blurs out everything beyond the photo. Still, it’s fun to experiment with: it even records corresponding audio as you record the picture. (That said, you don’t need a photo app or a special camera any longer to take 360-style pictures.) — Kelsey Hess
