360 ASMR, a way of the future. 360 degree videos offer a sense of virtual reality. ASMR is all about creating a believable and soothing feeling. Together they form VR asmr and fit together perfectly.
360 ASMR – What is virtual reality ASMR (ASMR VR)?
360 degree video is a video that records every direction. The viewer gets to decide whether he/she wishes to look down, up, left or right. So you will be in the middle of the action and get to be a person experiencing the moment. The effect is pretty cool on a computer or mobile but it’s super sweet if you are experiencing the 360 video with a virtual reality device.
How to view 360 ASMR videos?
First off, the better the video quality, the cooler the experience. I suggest you click on the settings button (gear icon) and select the maximum quality.
Computer: Simply left click with your mouse to the video and drag it to look around.
Mobile: If you move your mobile phone or pad around, the video will react.
For Virtual Reality users who use Freefly, Google Cardboard or similar device, click the cardboard icon on the YouTube app before putting your phone in.
