Watch Boeing’s vertical Dreamliner take-off from the captain’s chair

At the Paris Air Show, Boeing's 787-9 Dreamliner performed the spectacular feat of a vertical take-off. It turns out that Boeing wasn't just filming the flight from the runway.

Thanks to an innovative "choose your view" feature that YouTube started testing earlier this year, Boeing has released a "multi-view flying display" that lets you toggle between angles of the same scene without missing a beat.

Earlier today a new YouTube account appeared on Twitter called 'YouTube Gaming', and it had a single mysterious tweet. No announcement came with it, no explanation, no hints about what to expect. After awhile another tweet appeared, and it revealed a little more: a picture of devices running a new yet-to-be-announced product.

Just in case 4K video isn't cutting it for you, one of the first uploads to YouTube in 8K has been made recently.

Ghost Towns, from user NeumannFilms, was uploaded to the site less than a week ago, on June 7th. The interesting thing is, there's very few people with computers powerful enough to play something of this size.

Google’s VR circle is now complete: Cameras to Cardboard

Google's virtual reality ecosystem is now prepared to handle the public, with everything from low-cost VR headsets to YouTube 360.

The first step is providing the means to capture media, in this case 360-degree cameras - while Google's own 360-rig system Google Jump isn't quite prepared for the public as yet, they've already released tools for creatives with their own 360-capable cameras to upload to YouTube. Therein lies the second step: providing a place for creative people to share the media they've created - YouTube, of course.
