360-Degrees selfie among top ten 2017 technology breakthroughs

Inexpensive cameras that make spherical images are opening a new era in photography and changing the way people share stories
A new trend analysis identifies the technologies that will affect the economy and our politics, improve medicine, or influence our culture. Some are unfolding now; others will take a decade or more to develop.

According to the article by Technology Review, an online trend analysis media, 360-Degree Selfie is among the technologies that are projected to dominate substantial part of our lives in 2017. Consumer cameras that produce 360° images, providing a realistic sense of events or places, is increasingly becoming affordable. Coupled with the explosion in social networking this is certainly an attractive development.

Until recently, there were two main options for shooting photos and video that captured that context: use a rig to position multiple cameras at different angles with overlapping fields of view or pay at least $10,000 for a special camera. The production process was just as cumbersome and generally took multiple days to complete. Once you shot your footage, you had to transfer the images to a computer; wrestle with complex, pricey software to fuse them into a seamless picture; and then convert the file into a format that other people could view easily.
Today, anyone can buy a decent 360° camera for less than $500, record a video within minutes, and upload it to Facebook or YouTube.

Other technologies that makes it into the list include reversing paralysis, self-driving trucks, paying with your face, computers with previously unimaginable power, hot solar cells, gene therapy 2.0, the human cell atlas, internet of (every)thing, and reinforcement learning
