German journalist and photographer Jonas Ginter posted this video on Vimeo last week, filmed with a 360-degree spherical panorama camera that he built using six GoPro cameras and a 3-D printed mount.

Ginter took his complex contraption out for a bike ride in the park, and the final product is a joyful new perspective that makes the world positively small.

Enjoy!
