Humaneyes Technologies has announced a follow-up to its Vuze VR camera, the Vuze XR, which will capture both 360° (2D) and stereoscopic VR180 (3D) videos and photos. The Vuze XR camera, estimated to retail for $400, is two cameras in one: closed, it’s a 360° camera, but one click converts the device into a VR180 camera.
Additionally, the Vuze XR has built-in livestreaming smarts, meaning one can share a video to social media in real time. “One camera can now livestream in 360° from a concert, take immersive VR180 pictures of the band, and record your friends singing along to edit and share the full experience later,” says AlmaLinks member and Humaneyes CEO Shahar Bin-Nun. “We’re giving users the freedom to spontaneously shoot content from all angles, or only a few, and we can’t wait to see what’s created with it.”
Founded in 2000, Israel-based Humaneyes says it holds more than 70 patents across the 3D spectrum.
