Mercedes-Benz releases 360 degree video footage from GoodwoodEnlarge Photo
Modern motorsport coverage gives viewers plenty of angles to watch from, but doesn't give you every angle to watch from. But Mercedes-Benz recently released F1 car footage from Silverstone that got a lot closer, thanks to a 360-degree camera system that let viewers swing the camera around while the video played.
Developed by Freedom360, Mercedes has now released footage from more race vehicles, as they tackled the hill climb course at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed. Anyone with an Apple iPad device can head over to the App Store to download an app containing the footage taken from four iconic vehicles—a Mercedes AMG F1 car, the Sauber-Mercedes C9 Le Mans racer, an SLS AMG Black Series and a vintage W125 Silver Arrow racer.
You can also view a time-lapse of the Goodwood sculpture's construction from a 360-degree viewpoint—showing how the amazing structure, which crested the entire Goodwood House building, was put together. Those viewing on iPad can swing and tilt the device around to view the 360-degree images, but Mercedes has also provided links for those on PC or non-Apple devices to see the footage--click on any of the links below to check them out.
