Welcome to the future of online video.

YouTube announced on Friday that the site now supports 360-degree videos, so a viewer has the ability to pan around the scene as the video plays and watch a moment from different perspectives. On mobile devices you just have to move the phone itself around.

StressLevelZero created the above video as an example of how this new technology works. Note: you’ll need to be in the Chrome browser or on an Android phone.

The short film is about a flying, time traveling red couch, and you can click and drag inside the video to see what’s going on around you.

Of course to produce these videos you will need to buy a special camera. Right now Bublcam, Giroptic’s 360cam, IC Real Tech’s Allie, Kodak’s SP360 and RICOH THETA are all compatible with YouTube. And uploading the content requires a special process.

YouTube also offered some suggestions for what you can do with the technology.

You could let viewers see the stage and the crowd of your concert, the sky and the ground as you wingsuit glide, or you could even have a choose-your-own-adventure video where people see a different story depending on where they look. Only you know what’s possible.

The world is filled with questions, so many questions that’s hard to tell which one to answer first.

And then some questions are just unanswerable, even if you’re asking the smart people at MineCon ’16, the annual Minecraft Convention.

One little boy asked said question, and it has left us stunned. Pulling the plush purple pig off the top of his head and raising his hand to get the moderator’s attention, the boy asked simply: “How do you know if somebody is acting as if they were a good person, but in reality, they’re technically not a very good person?”

Wow. Life comes at you fast.
