When I visited Disneyland in the 1970s, they still showed their Circle-Vision 360° — the 360-degrees movie using 9 cameras to record an entire sphere of a landscape. They used it for things like riding in the middle of a herd of sheep, so that the film booth screen all around you was filled with the crammed, woolly bodies of those animals.
It started me dreaming about filming action movies where the audience gets to know not only what’s at the center of the action but also what was happening in the parking garage next door at the same time.
Now Snapdragon discovered a cool way to promote their Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, turning 130 smartphones into the ultimate smartphone photobooth. It sounds a lot more complicated than it is. And what’s the Jewish angle? I was wondering the same thing. maybe because Jews own so many smartphones.
