The other week we had a very nice 360 degree video that was simply a time-lapse of the city of Portland. There was something quite beautiful as the skies darkened and the mood of the city completely changed. We’re back in America today for something similar; Koncept VR’s recording of the ‘Manhattanhenge’ (aka the Manhattan Solstice) effect. A twice yearly event where the setting sun aligns with the street grid of the Manhattan, New York, the full sun being visible between the streets as it sets and subsequently you see this happening between the profiles of the buildings.
It’s quite the sight and there’s a growing interest in the phenomenon. You can see Koncept VR’s short video below. VRFocus will be back on Friday with another example of 360 degree video.
