My current work examines new mobile social video services in the creative arts, entertainment, games, and innovative learning, in particular the recording of 360-degree panoramic video using mobile phones. I analyze how these new technologies can be adopted, how attractive they are to users, and how the technology and other solutions need to develop to become popular and accessible for mainstream users. The main questions are: what kind of use cases and applications are there for an easy-to-carry panoramic video lens attached to a user’s mobile device, and how do users record and share panoramic videos?
