WATCH THIS: YouTube unleashes 360-degree VR video with Switzerland’s F-5 demo team

YouTube’s virtual-reality-friendly 360-degree video technology has finally launched, and one of the best examples comes directly from Switzerland’s F-5 Patrouille Suisse.

Giving you a cockpit view of the Swiss aerobatic team, YouTube’s new 360 tech makes it quite easy to become queasy when using Google Cardboard. For everyone else, however, you can pan your field of vision with a mouse or even just stare at the pilot for four minutes if you so wish.

Presumably the video was filmed using Google’s “Jump” technology, which was shown off at the Google I/O conference in May.

You can take in the view for yourself by watching the video embedded above, although it only works with browsers that support YouTube 360 videos. Google Chrome is your best bet, and Android’s YouTube app also works a treat. If you can’t see anything, or are unable to move the camera around, the video isn’t working properly for you.
