Littlstar brings immersive 360 degrees videos to Apple TV, giving that Siri Remote an even better use: scrolling around to move through the new settings.
The Siri remote touchpad becomes a gateway into a new immersive reality. The free Littlstar app available for download in the app store has a generous offering of 360 degrees videos for everyone to enjoy. For instance, a helicopter tour of Iceland could prove an interesting immersing experience for the entire family.
The majority of the 360 degrees videos might look familiar. If you’re one to search for videos on Showtime, Discovery, National Geographic, PBS, Disney, Red Bull channels, Mountain Dew and such others, they may seem old. Nonetheless, think of the new perspective.
An extreme winter sports video is certainly experienced differently as a 360 degrees video. An immersive experience of an adrenaline rush snowboard high altitude jumps enjoyed from the comfort of your living room. Sounds pretty cool, right? Well, with the free Littlstar app and the Siri remote, Apple TV becomes the source for such fun.
As Littlstar brings immersive 360 degrees videos to Apple TV, the blog post announcing the big news and posted by chief product officer and founder Tony Mugavero reads:
“We wanted to give audiences the ability to consume this content from their living rooms and in a social environment”.
That is, just in time for holiday getarounds with friends and family. It’s a win for Apple TV and a win for Littlstar offering the free Littlstar app. It’s also a win for the emerging virtual reality scene. These 360 degrees videos could well be coupled with virtual reality headsets like Samsung’s Gear VR or Google’s Cardboard VR headset. It’s for this reason that Littlstar is making these videos available for mobile apps and desktop as well.
Plug in a virtual reality headset and be transported in a different reality for a while. Nonetheless, Apple TV is also a fit medium for viewing the 360 degrees videos. Other streaming boxes could encounter serious problems in rendering such content. Place your bets on Apple TV, Siri remote and the free Littlstar app and try the 360 degrees videos for yourself.
