By Polo Lam, Global Marketing Assistant at GAZ VR & editor of revista Mundo360.

In my last article, I introduced your options of VR headsets. Now, we are going to create 360 images and photos like this one below. Click on the image and it will lead you to YouTube. Make sure you move your mobile screen or drag the video to capture the whole experience!
