Incredible VR 360% video of Artic

A screen snip I took on looking that way :)
Have been playing around with this for half an hour. The new thing online is 360% Virtual Reality video. I remember U2 experimented with it in a very rudimentary form ages ago, but things have certainly progressed beyond that. 

You need a reasonable connection, I'd say at least 8Mbps. What you can do when watching the video is to pan around for a 360% look whilst the video is playing. 

The bit on the boat with ice everywhere in the water, was like being on the boat and being able to look around like you're on the boat. Amazing!
