Announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Samsung has an awesome 360-degree camera that goes by the name Samsung Gear 360. The camera lets users capture, view and share 360-degree photos and video for everything from vacations to birthday parties to sports events. The footage can be edited with select Galaxy phones, and shared via social media or even viewed through the Gear VR. 360 videos are all over the place, and with VR becoming more and more popular, Samsung has now given users a simple way to create, edit and share 360-degree video anytime, anywhere.

"Samsung continues to push the boundaries of the mobile experience to extend beyond the smartphone," said DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. "On the heels of last year's Gear VR release, Gear 360 continues to push the limits on immersive content – providing a visual experience that makes capturing and sharing life's moments even easier."
