GoPro has yet to state a price on this but it is expected to be much lower than a their Odyssey 16 cam unit @ $15k
Consisting of 6 Hero 4 cameras and a integration/stitching unit, it is not a “3D” VR 360 camera like the Odyssey.
It remains to be seen if GoPro has what it takes to make a single 360 cam that can be used as a sports-cam like it’s Hero series cameras. But at this pricing, who would take one on a downhill ski run. Samsung Gear 360 seems a bit more realistic for that.
This tech is surely going to change who the technology leaders are. One device at a time.
Well those that have tried VR know it is very hard to convince anyone with words as we know, and watching someone in VR looks a bit dorky, and viewing a video of what they see does not provide the immersion that makes VR what it is.
