So the word is out! The Samsung Developer Conference has revealed that they have developed a 360-degree stereoscopic 3D camera system (“Project Beyond”) complete with streaming functionality in full HD form.
According to Samsung, they have a series of these cameras running all over California and from their presentation stage as well.
360-degree 3D image capture seems to be the new territory everyone is fighing for to supplement HMD solutions on mobile and desktop. No word on price or quality yet, but similar to technologies by Jaunt and NextVR, this is a crtiical step in helping make sure there is enough VR-Ready content to sustain and grow the industry long term. Good stuff!
