CNN's 360 degree video camera, used to cover the Haiti crisis, is a must-see item. Leaving aside the ethics of using a crisis like Haiti to drive traffic to their video (I have also been unhappy to see some bloggers milking the crisis for page views) I have to say I am enthusiastic about the possibilities. Put one of these in front of a rock concert and let people pick their own camera angles. Put several of them over a hockey rink and let people manage their own coverage (or better, gather in groups and have DJ-like camera work). Via.
