How does it feel like if you can see sights of top athletes? With panorama virtual reality technology, it is possible to virtually experience top athletes’ view. We have shot 8 different sports events with help of athletes in Japan.
Each athlete wore a special helmet equipped with 6 action cameras. The helmet and video stabilization technology are provided by Sony Computer Science Lab & Rekimoto Lab of the University of Tokyo’s Jack In Head Technology.
Japanese Olympian Mr. Dai Tamesue of Athlete Society helped us casting the athletes.
