- Video zooming based on HMD position

Maybe a little experimental, but I think zooming the video in and out as you lean forward and backward is a good idea. This would help with motion sickness and immersion in 360 videos. You wouldn't necessarily want to match the zoom exactly to the distance the headset moves--just enough to give a sense that moving forward/backward has an effect. Also might want to always be gradually returning the video to 1:1 zoom--slow enough to be mostly imperceptible.

And this might be totally off-the-wall and look terrible, but maybe do the same thing for horizontal and vertical HMD movement? Again, just enough that small movements of the HMD have a perceivable effect, and then gradually return to 0,0.
