Mathematical Artist Demonstrates His Mind-bending Spherical Droste Video Editing Technique

Mathematical artist Henry Segerman demonstrates his mind-bending spherical Droste video editing technique. One side of the 360° video slowly zooms in while the other zooms out, creating a unique effect as different versions of Segerman greet each other and explain what is happening in the video.

Segerman worked with Vi Hart on another video explaining the basic mathematics behind the effect, and a panel at Vidcon with Hart and her virtual reality research group eleVR explains the basics of 360° video. A post on the eleVR site gets into much more detail about using and editing 360° video Möbius transformations.
