Ever been to a tech festival?

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

Some of the Photo Spheres uploaded by the community are breathtaking and as Evan Rapoport, Google product manager for Photo Spheres explains, many photographers have already amassed millions of views for their images.

If you just want to say “wow” or maybe ask the photographer how they captured their latest Photo Sphere, now there’s an easy way to do so. Furthermore, creating these images should be more appealing for shutterbugs, given there’s a good chance they’ll now trigger some discussion and feedback.
