Immersive experience demo’d with Paul McCartney concert on Google Cardboard

If you have Google Cardboard and want to check out what one company believes will be the future of video, you can download a free app to experience part of a Paul McCartney concert in 360-degree video.

Captured with a new ‘cinematic VR’ system by Jaunt, the performance of Live and Let Die was captured at the final concert at Candlestick Park before the stadium closed, reports TNW.

You can download the free app from the Google play store. It requires a recent 5- or 6-inch phone and, of course, Google Cardboard.

After the right to be forgotten, celebrities acting on the right to be blurred …

Amidst the ‘controversy’ of the recently-introduced ‘right to be forgotten‘ on Google, the Independent reports that celebrities and other public figures are asking Google to blur the Street View images of their homes. Musicians Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page, Lily Allen and Katherine Jenkins are amongst those named as having taken advantage of the Google tool to request this. Google’s Street View privacy page says that in addition to the blurring it already does automatically (including faces, some street numbers and some homes), additional blurring is done on request.

We provide easily accessible tools allowing users to request further blurring of any image that features the user, their family, their car or their home. In addition to the automatic blurring of faces and license plates, we will blur the entire car, house, or person when a user makes this request for additional blurring.
