September First Friday
Even with the threat of crazy Texas thunderstorms, September’s First Friday went off without a hitch. We had a great turnout and we spoke to so many people about our technology and videos. We debuted a new camera at First Friday and a new video! We have a new, slim 360° camera that can live stream to social media and has a very clean stitch line. We also debuted a new video from our New Zealand dive, a massive fish swarm comes and visits our camera and divers. Did you come see the new camera and video? What are your thoughts? View the video on our home page!
We are happy to announce our very first volunteer! Moses comes to us from the Engineering Department at Texas A&M University. He will be working on an amazing new video combining an Aggie monument with our 360° cameras to create a great interactive VR experience. We can’t wait to see what he creates. Does this sound like something you would like to learn how to create? Email us about opportunities!
Meet Jordan Murphy!
Jordan is our resident software engineer. He has been busy working on creating a unique app so we can share our content in a fun and useful way. As well as working away on app development, he is also the researcher behind the Glacier Bay VR video featured on our website last month. Katja caught up with Jordan for this month’s spotlight to learn more about him. You can check out Jordan’s spotlight on our website.
360° Cameras: Past and Future
Ever wanted to know where the idea of 360° cameras came from and where the technology is headed? Dakota looked into the technological evolution of 360° cameras and what the future holds. Go check out the blog and see where the future of 360° cameras is headed.
We have a bunch of trips planned for the coming fall. Which means new videos! We will be visiting the tropical waters of Mexico in September, the towering redwoods of Northern California in October, and finally back to the mountains of Mexico City in November. Stay tuned for these new videos in the coming months.
