GoPro Fusion: Relive Reality

 

By: GoPro

Originally published on Apr 20, 2017

Introducing Fusion, the new GoPro that packs a huge punch. Fusion is the ultimate capture device for fully immersive virtual reality content, non-VR video, and even photos.

It captures stunning 5.2K30 video and breathtaking photos in full spherical—but that’s not all. ­­ Fusion’s 5.2K resolution enables a new OverCapture creative solution that gives content creators the flexibility to produce conventional non-VR video and photos in HD-quality “punched out” from the spherically captured angles ensuring you’ll always get the shot.

Those interested in participating in the pilot program can apply now at https://gopro.com/fusion.

The robot’s lifelike movement catches the attention of a real dog. The uncanny uncanine valley. This is the latest quadruped robot from Google’s Boston Dynamics group, and the only one in civilian hands. Another Video: https://youtu.be/q2gehrAhflQ Photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/jurvets… And I revisited my post on the Google Master Plan, and sure enough, we see Robots → Skynet → Terminator → Google Security → User Happiness https://www.flickr.com/photos/jurvets…
