Project Beyond: Samsung’s Bold New 3D, 360-degree Camera for Gear VR

/ 9 years ago


Samsung has just detailed its plans for Gear VR, and while it was at it, it announced its Project Beyond camera at its ongoing developer conference in San Francisco. Project Beyond is an interesting device, with 16 individual “HD-quality” cameras that continuously capture 360-degree imagery – capturing a gigapixel of data per second – stitching it together into one continuous video, streaming it to Samsung’s Gear VR headset.

The potential of this is limited obviously, because Project Beyond cannot stream to anything but Gear VR, but the future potential of the camera is immense. Imagine concerts, sporting events, and other live events in VR – with the event having multiple Project Beyond cameras streaming you different “positions” from the event, all in VR. The future is VR, that’s for sure.
