Here are our top five
We’ve scoured YouTube’s vast selection of 360-degree videos to find you some of the most daredevil viewing. Here are our top five favourites – don’t forget to move your phone around to get the full experience.
Cliff Diving from a Rocky Ledge in Italy by Red Bull
One of the best things about 360 video technology is that it allows us to live out our fantasies of doing wild and crazy stunts without actually having to leave the sofa. This video by Red Bull is a perfect example.
Filmed on a camera strapped to Kyle Mitrione from the US Cliff Diving Team, watching this footage makes you feel like you’re jumping off this dangerous precipice in Italy as part of the 2017 Cliff Diving World Series. Luckily, the video dives right in without including the knee-knocking nerves that came beforehand.

Lions by National Geographic
Nature is incredible, but there are parts of it that you’re likely to never witness in real life. Fortunately, National Geographic has found a way to get you close to the wonders of the day in the life of a lion without putting you in any danger.
This video follows a young lion cub named Gibson and his mother as they find themselves in a bit of a hostile situation with their pride’s alpha male.
Check out Gibson’s day here.
