GoPro chief executive Nick Woodman announces a $3,000 spherical camera rig for capturing VR Video in order to record video footage for virtual reality experiences.
The camera will be launched in the later part of this year. With the advent of these products, GoPro want to broaden its reach from just called a business that sells cameras for adventure lovers to one that is focused more on the emerging Virtual Reality environment.
Woodman said the spherical array will be available in the second half of this year. The product shown here is a prototype, so the final product’s appearance may be different.
He also said that the company would be releasing a quadcopter with a camera, although he provided few specifics other than saying it would also be shipping in the second half of the year.
