Samsung’s Project Beyond Virtual Reality Kit Set For December Launch

Samsung has revealed a 360 degree camera they claim could revolutionise the way we communicate by enabling us to enter a real time virtual world anywhere the camera is set up. It will work with Samsung’s wireless Gear VR system, which is set for release in December. Samsung is planning to use the device to capture events and places around the world for purchasers of its Gear VR  system.

Think Tank, Samsung’s American research arm, said ‘Teleport to the places and events you always wanted to see. Be anywhere. Today we offer a sneak preview of Project Beyond, the world’s first true 3D 360˚ omniview camera. Beyond captures and streams immersive videos in stunning high-resolution 3D, and allows every user to enjoy their viewing experience in the way they see fit. It offers full 3D reconstruction in all directions, using stereo camera pairs combined with a top-view camera to capture independent left and right eye stereo pairs.”

Project Beyond uses patent-pending stereoscopic interleaved capture and 3D-aware stitching technology to capture the scene just like the human eye, but in a form factor that is extremely compact.
