We recently reported the arrival of GoPro‘s Omni VR camera – a cube which houses six GoPros to capture 360 degree video in high definition. Well now the company has released its own stunning vision from the rig which showcases the device’s immersive viewing environment.
In the free-style skiing video which was shot in the Tyrolean Alps of Austria, viewers can simply toggle to the direction they want to look in.
It’s important to note that the rig isn’t just a 3D printed housing as GoPro have implemented proprietary hardware to allow all six cameras to achieve pixel level synchronisation. This means that the captured footage can be experienced in an interactive video like the above or by using a VR headset.
The GoPro Omni will retail for US$5,000 including the six cameras or $1,500 for just the rig. See GoPro for more details.
