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.
Best ways to watch ASMR VR?
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.
Google Cardboard – The affordable way
It sounds like a joke, but it works really really well. Google Cardboard is essentially a piece of cardboard folded into a box that will be your VR device. You just slide in an iPhone or Android phone, run Google’s Cardboard app, and voila – Good to go. It’s a great product with very cheap price tag. If you already have a VR device, these are affordable gifts for your friends!

Fannego 3D VR Headset – The cost effective way
I’ve tried a lot of VR headsets in the past and initially chose to buy this one because it had one key feature for me: focal adjustments for near sighted eyesight. The lens quality is actually so much better than I expected and it’s really comfortable to wear. These are the reasons I chose to feature this product on our website. It’s the best one in its price range. It’s compatible with IOS & Android Other 3.5″-6.0″ Cellphones.
