Lytro announces worldâ€™s first light field VR video camera
J Thoendell stashed this in Oculus
Unlike standard 360ÂşÂ video, light field video captured with Lytro Immerge allows for six degrees of motion freedom within the cameraâ€™s volume, which is about one meter. This means that you could conceivably moveÂ around within the volume of the sphere and lean in toward objects. In addition to adding a degree of positionally tracked volume to the scene, a true light field recording like Lytroâ€™s creates both horizontalÂ andÂ vertical parallax, giving the scene true depth and perspective regardless of your viewing angle.
