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!
