By now, just about everyone is familiar with video cameras that record in 3D, or that transmit traditional 2D footage. Vairdo’s new EYSE actioncam, however, is actually capable of live-streaming high-definition 3D video.
This means that one person can wear the camera while performing activities such as skiing, allowing someone else to view their immersive first-person footage as it’s being shot.
The GPS-equipped camera itself is shock-absorbent, waterproof (depending on the model), and incorporates two 5-MP lenses. These capture stereoscopic video, which is transmitted from the camera via Wi-Fi to the recipient’s smartphone. That phone can be mounted in a third-party VR headset, letting the user get the full 3D effect.
Utilizing mobile networks, it should soon even be possible for the shooter and the viewer to be located in different parts of the world.
