360-degree videos are typically viewed via personal computers, mobile devices such as smartphones, or dedicated head-mounted displays. Users can pan around the video by clicking and dragging. On smartphones, internal sensors such as the gyroscope can also be used to pan the video based on the orientation of the device. Taking advantage of this behavior, stereoscope-style enclosures for smartphones (such as Google Cardboard viewers and the Samsung Gear VR) can be used to view 360-degree videos in an immersive format similar to virtual reality. The phone display is viewed through lenses contained within the enclosure, as opposed to virtual reality headsets that contain their own dedicated displays.
Of course, in adding complexity to your ads, keep in mind the technical limitations of the networks your users will be operating on. The world's most elegant graphic or snappy capability won't make much of an impression if it takes 45 seconds to download. Make sure that the time between clicking the banner and the first user interaction is less than five seconds. A good rule of thumb is to assume a download rate of about 100kB per second over cellular networks.

We're still in the early days, but the results look extremely promising. For example, a recent Nielsen study (funded by Apple) showed that viewers of a Campbell's iAd featuring new products, recipes and coupons remembered the brand "Campbell's" five times more often than TV ad respondents. Out of 53 million impressions, 1% of users that saw the ad clicked through and spent an average of nearly one minute perusing it. That number may seem small, but this is one market to keep an eye on.
