SAMSUNG are set to launch a new VR browser. The devices currently supported are Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note5 with Gear VR.
This new browser will allow to import your bookmarks, stream 360 videos straight from the internet. WHATGEAR 360 VIDEOS. Select pages and navigation on screen buttons using your eyes gaze.
However there is a downside to converting the world wide web into VR. You will lose some picture quality. With that said VR is certainly more captivating than sitting in front of a boring old monitor. What so you think?
So as you might know if your subscribed to WhatGear. We create a fair bit of 360 content. Which we capture using the Pixpro Kodak SP360.
A while back we heard about the Google Jump which basically tethers together 17 GoPros. We applief to be one of the pioneers for this new tech. Unfortunately we were shutdown/denied. So anyway I've been keeping an eye out for this and here it is. Some of the worlds first 360 video footage from Google Jump.
While the scenary is quite impressive. I have to say some of the stuff we've done with our Kodak is definitely more fun. What did you think of the videos?
