Ah, yes... so, instead of 10 sleeping guards, you have one "resting his eyes."
If Samsung is announcing VR that is not yet ready for market, can announcements of Jet Packs and military robots be far behind?? If you think this will ever go anywhere, I have a couple 4-story barges full of shipping containers I want to sell you...
This feels like Samsung is trying to appear "edgy" and copy Google in throwing money into the wind. If this camera is small enough to fit into the nether regions of an elephant, that would be a virtual reality trip no one has thought about... yet.... :smokey:
And the ad is shit:
A bunch of kids go to a sunny beach all dressed in black with a big eff off suitcase which for some reason is required to house a slender tripod and a 10 cm circumference device and film eff all, then one of them walks in a grey floored empty room with a grey T, picks up and wears a pair of oversized goggles that make him look like a hammer head, watches said empty beach, then various landmarks around the globe, and then... there's the Samsung spec sheet, as if anyone's interested in having a pointed arrow show the "cooling system".
Utterly dreadful, makes me want to kill myself instead of wanting to try, let alone buy this.
If it's vapourware anyway why not, say, have it inside the sea to really capture a world you can't experience that often unless via VR. Or in a really spectacular place on a mountain, in a jungle, maybe somewhere you could set it and leave and then experience the place afterwards.
Also if that thing's on a tripod then all you can do is move your head around and see one thing, as if you were motionless in a place, how 's that a great experience?

WOW! Samsung actually comes up with something NEW AND GROUNDBREAKING!!! They're finally spending money on R&D...oh...wait a minute...oh, yeah, from 2013...
They copied the grey floor too.
Shrink the tech down (as it will eventually be done) and this will be quite appealing. I’ve always wanted to try out one of those omnidirectional movement systems...
Interesting stuff. It definitely has potential and is the type of thing that will very obviously be used all over. Just think of sporting events where stuff sometimes happens off camera and nobody actually saw it? Problem solved.
Gold IRA Rollover
Maybe not a consumer device but if you can do 3d walking tours of interesting places it can generate a fair amount of content easily and subsequently significant interest in Occulus products.
I hate to come to Sammy's defense but there is a big difference. The Ricoh camera is 360 degrees but not stereoscopic. If you were to look through a VR headset, it would be like needing to close one eye so you don't have any 3d information. With Samsung's solution you can look around and things are in 3d. That adds a lot to the realism.
Yeah, but who's yer daddy....??
