Lytro Immerge Can Take VR To A Whole New Level

Lytro Immerge Can Take VR To A Whole New Level

lytro_immerge_1

We’re big fans of everything Lytro makes, because they bring true innovation to the field of digital photography. Where most progress comes in the form of more megapixels, slimmer designs and other marginal improvements, Lytro brings “Ray Field Technology” that lets them capture more information per image than normal cameras. Now with the Immerge, they’re hoping to do the same to the field of VR. It’s a 360 degree camera that captures the world around it in a way that’s never been done, giving the VR viewer six degrees of freedom. So, whereas a VR user can now look both ways horizontally and vertically, with Immerge you’ll be adding up/down and left/right freedom, for a true immersive experience. It’s a complex system aimed a professional storytellers who want to create a complex virtual environment, and it’s still under development so there’s no price or availability information. If you’re in the creative game, you can apply to test a prototype.
