Periscope and Google Cardboard 2.0

Play
In episode 49 of the Podcast, we talk about several cool new technologies that can be incorporated into your online or offline business ventures.

Periscope

An online streaming app from the folks at Twitter, that lets you broadcast live from anywhere you have an internet connection.

Google Cardboard 2.0

Google announced this week that their Cardboard app is now available for iOS devices and their Cardboard 2.0 virtual reality system now handles mobile devices up to 6 inches in length diagonally.

That is great news for anyone who like myself, has the iPhone 6 plus and has been wanting to give the $20 Google Cardboard Virtual Reality experience a try!

Final Thoughts

These new technologies have some serious promise as a way to transform the way people consume content going forward.  With the ability to provide an audience with real time, behind the scenes access and 360 degree immersive experiences, I think the possibilities are really endless.

I would definitely encourage you to explore these exciting new opportunities and see how you could incorporate them into your own online or offline ventures.

Do you have any experience with Periscope or the Google Cardboard Virtual Reality system that you could share?  If so, drop a comment below or head on over to our free, private FB Mastermind Group and let us know!

Thanks a Bunch!

A while back, a subscriber Dirk had mentioned that he was planning to purchase several items on Amazon and he asked if I had an Amazon affiliate link for him to go through, as a way to say thanks.   I received a similar query this week from another subscriber, Sarah.

First off, I greatly appreciate you guys reaching out to ask if there is a way you can give back to me, for helping provide you guys with whatever inspiration, motivation or technical guidance that you’ve received along the way!

If you did ever want to help pay the bills at NicheSiteTools.com, one of the best ways is by checking out some of the products or services mentioned either in the sidebar on the site or the resources page.  For instance, Webhosting Hub for web hosting, Long Tail Pro for keyword research, EasyAzon plugin for Amazon Affiliates, Proven Amazon Course or Amazon Boot Camp for Amazon FBA training programs, etc.

If you go through those links, you would provide me with the opportunity to receive a commission, at no additional cost to you.  In most cases, you will receive a substantial discount on products that I have utilized and recommend.

Another way is to utilize my Amazon affiliate link before you make a purchase.  That is something I have personally done for others also, as a way to support and say thanks to them for helping me out.

My link is easy to remember, it is:

http://www.nichesitetools.com/amazon

I would greatly appreciate you going to that link before making a purchase.  Amazon commissions are lower (typically 4-6% of sales), when compared to other affiliate type commissions, however every little bit helps and I would be eternally grateful.

I sincerely thank you guys ahead of time for your generosity and continued support of the site and my efforts!  As always, best wishes for success with all of your online adventures!

Another great episode….I would love to be creating virtual 360 videos. Did you happen to find out where you can buy these rigs ?

Thanks Matt!

Unfortunately right now, I don’t believe you can buy them. It looks like Go Pro will be the primary creator, but I believe Google will also be releasing the specs so that you could create your own as well.

Here is a link to a related article on the Go Pro site:
