Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Facebook recently introduced the ability for anyone to upload and view 360 photos and videos, while YouTube is seeing a sharp increase in 360 content. Social Weaver will use a Ricoh Theta S camera, the Cardboard Camera app and Google Cardboard viewers to demonstrate how to shoot, edit, view and share your own immersive 360° content. We will be giving away a few Google Cardboards as well.
