Vuze VR Camera – An Immersive Experience

Have you ever thought about what it might be like to relive the best moments of your life, and be able to share them with others? Maybe it’s the dance floor at your wedding. Or the birth of your child or his or her first birthday. Maybe it’s that touchdown that led your team to victory in the last seconds of a game. With today’s mobile virtual reality technology, it’s possible to create virtual memories and it has never been easier to get started.

The Vuze XR Camera

Humaneyes Technologies, an innovator in camera technology, has developed a user-friendly, dual camera that combines 360-degree photography with immersive 3-D Virtual Reality (VR), all in one simple-to-use solution that costs about the same as a decent DSLR
camera.

“360-degree pictures and video continue to change how we use cameras to capture the world around us,” says media expert Jim Malcolm of Humaneyes Technologies. “And the global adoption of VR headsets, combined with 3-D cameras, is providing even more ways to create virtual content and virtual memories.”

“We’ve done it with the best, from documenting Mako sharks with The Discovery Channel to weightless experiences in the International Space Station, floating more than 250 miles above the horizon.”

“We’re now excited to watch, firsthand, as consumers create their own immersive personal stories,” says Malcolm.

The Vuze XR flips easily from a 360-degree camera to a VR180 camera and shoots both virtual video and photos. Whether you’re recording or live streaming, users can create and share virtual experiences at that moment, and then save them to revisit next week or next decade. Special features of the VUZE include 18-Mega Pixel still images, built-in stabilization, filters, and a VR editing suite. Plus, it doesn’t get more portable.

“Everything can be viewed, controlled and edited, right from your phone, so that you can shoot, create and share virtual videos at a moment’s notice,” says Malcolm. But not everything needs to be virtual; the VUZE also functions as a 5.7K and 4K up to 60fps 2D camera for capturing high-resolution video and pictures to fill out your photo album.

Think ahead to the holidays and how the latest in VR technology can help make unforgettable memories and connect far-flung family and friends. The VUZE XR camera also features live streaming and social sharing for platforms, including Facebook and YouTube, so that you can bring your social media audience into the scene with you.

How Robots Will Shape Humanity – A New Perspective

Throughout the years, technology has improved drastically – creating machines and devices that were unimaginable 50 years ago. And perhaps the most advanced and interesting of society’s technological advancements is robots – but it is also the most misunderstood.

In fact, according to recent research, more than 70 percent of people express concern about a world in which machines perform many of the tasks done by humans. Fortunately, there are people who believe humans and robots can coexist and work together in harmony and are working to debunk many of the fears people have about them.

Mouser Electronics Inc., a leading semiconductor and electronics component distributor based in Fort Worth, TX, and celebrity engineer Grant Imahara (Yes, from Mythbusters) have teamed up again for the fourth consecutive year for their Empowering Innovation Together program.

This year’s program is called Generation Robot, which features five videos filmed across the world, including in the U.S., Germany and Japan. Mouser’s goal is to reach innovators around the globe by showing how robots have a positive impact on humanity and change how people see the possibility of interacting with them.

Throughout the Generation Robot series, the entire spectrum of robotics will be examined, as will the understanding of how robots not only have a technological impact on society, but also a social and moral one. The video series begins with Imahara visiting the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines at Georgia Tech, and speaking with the executive director, Dr. Magnus Egerstedt.

There, he explores several aspects of robots, such as the basics of the machines, myths and misconceptions, as well as the hopes for, and fears of, the advancement of robot technology. In the video, Dr. Egerstedt mentions that robots used to be about mechanical engineering, but now modern robots involve psychology, because these machines will be working along with humans and thus they need to understand people.

The second video, which takes place in Augsburg, Germany, dives into the real meaning of robots and humans working together, as well as the way this interaction will benefit society.

The third video, which comes out in mid-July, will focus on the all-robot-staffed hotel in Nagasaki, Japan, where Imahara investigates the way robots behave utilising only artificial intelligence.
