Domino fanatic FlippyCat placed a 360° camera and binaural microphones in the middle of a room, then stacked a circle of 4,200 dominoes around them. The surround audio as the dominoes drop is just as mesmerizing as watching them all crash around you.

Currently raising funds on Indiegogo, the Exo360 promises to capture full 360º aerial video, thanks to its five built-in cameras, and automated stitching technology. We highly recommend going for the pricier 4K model, as lower res VR video tends to look muddy.
