Watching balloons.

The power of spherical video for VR is that it can transport you. We've found the best experiences aren't necessarily highly produced, carefully shot cinematic features or special events. It's exciting to just put on a headset and find yourself in a field, watching some balloons get launched. This is what it's all about — real world experiences even if you can't really be there.

See everything

A short explainer video, showcasing the GoPro prototype and demonstrating how we can take spherical footage on a single camera, put it on a smart phone, and start watching it in a headset. No stitching. No complicated post-production. It just works. Easy enough for anyone to figure out and become both a consumer and producer of VR content.

We're on a boat!

One of the earliest shoots was on a boat in up-state New York. The first (sphere) prototype was hand-made, looked like a pepper grinder, and was imperfect. But, it's beautiful, we love it, and it worked — a single lens that captures a fully immersive spherical video experience. Like any great hardware innovation, there was a lot of duct tape involved, and it turns out that a boat is a place to shoot spherical video for VR!
