Jeffrey from 360 Cities sez, "I am one of the world's most obsessive and fanatical 360 photographers. So when this weird looking dual-fisheye Theta 360 Camera came out, I hunted high and low for how to get a sample in my hands as quickly as humanly possible. Five days later, the fedex guy showed up with my camera...."
This thing is a futuristic little device that shoots completely spherical images with a button push. No alignment errors or stitching or any other stuff. What is amazing to me about this thing is that you can stick the camera inside things and shoot a totally spherical image - things that were totally impossible before are now *totally easy*. I made a panorama inside a bucket... even inside a beer glass while I was drinking it...
While the resolution could be higher, it is definitely a viable version 1 product. I'm really curious how this device will take off. As a 360 photographer, this thing is really interesting.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
