Ever thought how you can get a little more juice from your Apple TV? Well, here’s an idea. Littlstar integrates 360 videos in Apple TV app, meaning that you’ll now be able to access super HD videos via your Apple device.
Apple did indeed promise us that the Apple TV will totally change the way we watch TV channels. And it would seem that they were good for it. Only this time, it isn’t Apple which spearheads the new wave of tv-related gizmos, it is Littlstar, a company which specialized in high-quality videos.
As stated, Littlstar announced on Tuesday that they will be launching a new application for the critically-acclaimed Apple TV set. With the new app, viewers will be able to access high-quality content from Showtime, Disney, PBS, Discovery, National Geographic and Red Bull.
Moreover, it would seem that the update won’t be standalone, but it will be perfectly integrated into the latest version of Siri Remote.
So, what’s up with the new application? Not much, unless you take into account that through the new app, you will be able to view 360 degrees enriched videos from the comfort of your couch. Yes, you heard it right.
Users will now be able to explore the scenes from a video, only by using Apple’s TV trackpad. To say that this new type of technology opens up new perspective is an understatement. It way very well be that true 3-D television is not that far away. VR got it right and Apple has managed to take the first steps towards a new era of interactive television.
In the meantime, here are a couple of hints on Apple’s main competitor in the area of smart TVs. This week, Google announced that its Chromecast will showcase Rovio’s new game, Angry Birds Friends.
The tech giant announced that more Chromecast-ready games are on the way. These games will also be compatible with iOS and Android. The main participants in Google’s new move are Driver Speedboat Paradise, Monopoly Here and Now, Scrabble Blits 2.0 and several other titles including the ever popular Risk board game.
Littlstar integrates 360 videos in Apple TV app and everyone is going bonkers over Siri’s remote new cool features. A couple of months ago, the only device that was capable of emulating pseudo-VR video clips was Google’s Cardboard.
But, it would seem that with Apple’s bold move, the dices were thrown and the game is afoot.
