Periscope – Covering the News in Real Time

What if you could see through the eyes of a protester in Ukraine? Or watch the sunrise from a hot air balloon? It may sound crazy, but with Periscope you are live, via the “scoper” mobile phone’s video camera. It is the closest thing to teleportation. While there are many ways to discover events and places, we realized there is no better way to experience a place right now than through live video. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but live video can take you someplace and show you around. Explore the world through someone Else’s eyes, that’s Periscope.

In this story Nile discusses Periscope and how it might be used to cover the news, as it was in this recent San Francisco grass fire.
