Your Daily Explore 360 VR Fix: 360° Video: Knife factory in Taiwan turns violent past into profit

The Maestro Wu knife factory on Taiwan’s Kinmen islands practices a unique form of recycling. Here, workers use artillery shells, left from decades of bombardment, to create blades known for their extreme sharpness and durability.

Founded in 1937, the factory first used shells dropped by Allied Forces in World War II – a convenient source of metal at a time when steel was in short supply.

China also bombarded the island through the late 1970s, leaving millions of shells as an abundant source for production.

Each shell yields up to 60 knives, ranging in price from $100 to more than $500 for specialty blades.

I hope that you are ready for your daily fix of VR juice. Drink it up, there will be a new one tomorrow.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?
