Instead of having to frame a picture or point the lens in the right direction, a 360-degree camera can instantly capture the entire scene. If you view and shoot the picture properly, you can feel like you have been transported to another place. The camera opens up creative possibilities. For example, many people are using it to do cool things like shrink a panorama into a distinctive orb. By combining the images of two fisheye-style lenses into a single “spherical” photo or video, you can create an new kind of photograph since the photographer can always be in shot.

This relates to engineering since scientists have used their knowledge of physics and photography to create a product that will enable us to do things better.
