360-degree videos let you look around your environment, so pay attention to what’s sneaking up behind you.

In a web browser you can simply click and drag the video around. On a mobile phone you can look around by moving your phone. In a VR visor, just turn your head. With the visor, sometimes it’s best if you have a swivel chair and a few feet of clearance in the real world.

As always, if you start to feel dizzy or nauseous, take off the visor and take a break.
