There have been so many new changes happening in the #ARVRinEDU world. From Merge Cube Madness to 360 cameras to upcoming conferences, the ARVRinEDU community is on fire! Below are a few things to check out.

Watch for some upcoming apps to be released by Merge VR and others including: Museum Viewer and Build-Your-Own-Diorama. I've also listed my top 10 favorite #MergeCube apps with EdSurge due to release this week.
Looking for a 360 camera? I've recently purchased the Insta360 One because it has the following features:
4K quality videos
24 MP photos
**Live Streaming with Periscope, Facebook Live and YouTube Live**
I've had many people reach out about what 360 camera I was using to live stream. Exploring all the cameras, I didn't want to connect to my computer in order to live stream in 360. I specifically wanted a camera that connects to my iPhone and streams (live), records and captures in 360. Michael Fricano has compiled a list of other 360 camera's to evaluate.
