Hubblo streams 3D 360 VR video to make you even more sick
We've seen a lot of live streaming and 360 degree cameras before.
But this one is slightly different because it's streaming in 3D.
It's called the Hubblo.
It's a lightweight camera unit that does all the processing, stitching, and crunching inside the unit.
There's no external control box that you need to worry about.
It's got six 200 degree fisheye lenses.
It is shooting 4K at 30 frames per second.
And once you've connected it to a network, like your LTE network if you're out an about, you can then stream out live to the app itself.
It's slightly different in terms of how they want you view this content.
Now, Hubble wants you to look at it in its own app rather than through A third-party platform like Facebook or YouTube but does 2D 360 streaming.
The thing is with the Hubblo is that you put on a VR headset, and then you can actually use the camera in the phone itself to have this kind of semi augmented reality view where you see the stream at the top.
And at the bottom, you can see a Bluetooth keyboard if you wanna purchase it separately.
And you can chat with a broadcast live in real time.
Now the Hubbler is going to be available on IndyGoGo for around $1,000 when it launches and the retail price will be around $1,200 when it goes on sale.
By the end of T1 is what the company tells me.
And they also said that the post processing is available if you want to output that stream to 2D and put it out on Facebook or YouTube for later, in theory, but they weren't able to show me that.
But the actual experience of watching that weird hybrid side by side of having the keyboard at the bottom and the live stream at the top of the VR did make me feel kind of nauseous.
But it was really cool, and there's very little lag at all, which is different to some of the other live streaming platforms out there at the moment.
