The PufferSphere M ball display is the non-headset way to see 360 degree videos

The 360-degree market is exploding thanks to VR headsets like the Oculus Rift. But while more and more cameras are being shoved into the market, beyond cramming your eyes into a headset or watching on a flat screen, there’s few ways to watch these videos in a fun, dynamic way.

Pufferfish’s PufferSphere M is a video ball that lets you navigate a 360-degree video as if it were a globe. Just scroll with your fingers to peer around the video scene. While it can be a little odd, if you’re a business trying to display a 360-degree video, this is an eye catching solution.

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

The display is available in 600mm, 760mm and 900mm diameters. The acrylic display uses a DLL projector shooting out 8,000 lumens. While the display is clearly marketed to businesses, if the 360-degree craze explodes, expect CES 2018 to be filled with ball-shaped 16K TVs.
