Virtual reality is one of the most interesting and potentially game changing technologies in the world of storytelling. It is rapidly integrating itself into our social platforms, including Facebook and Youtube. Recently Samsung gave a large amount customers their new VR goggles, which were compatible with their S7 smartphone. Never has VR been so accessible.
The arms race for the best way to capture VR content is on. GoPro is looking to answer this with their Omni system, a 6-camera spherical array that is light enough to ski with. Although this system seems like it could be potentially bulky, the video that is captured is pretty wild. If you do line up the right shots, what you can see is truly unique. Curious to see what this technology will allow us to create.
