Before the Apple Watch there was the Pebble Watch. There’s definitely a respect for the smart watch technology that Pebble came out with way before the giants came into the market. And it’s bound to happen with the VR camera market.
Before Samsung revealed their VR camera, Lucid had already developed the world’s 1st consumer 3D VR camera. And it looks very promising. They are currently taking pre-orders for the Lucid as they had to raise funding on Indegogo to fulfill orders of what already has become a high demand product.
The Lucid camera does look like a streamlined consumer product that anyone can carry around and use which is great! This is what I’m talking about when I said that VR cameras are going to change our world of content and experience, yet again. The Lucid cam takes 180 degree video in full 1080P high definition resolution. It is compact and built to be taken anywhere. So I can imagine a world of video content that enables us to watch it in full virtual reality with or with out VR peripherals. The potential immersive experience that can be taken and shared with a cadet like this is endless.
You can look at VR content as time machines. You can capture the content in 3D video, go back, watch it in 3D virtual reality and “re-live” the experience. A product like the Lucid came makes “going back in time” possible – the possibilities are unlimited.
Wear it on your hat or mount it on your body, the Lucid is meant to be a part of your world and go wherever you go so that you can capture those precious moments. It’s very practical for consumer use.
Much respect for the innovators and creators of Lucid for changing our world to come. Let’s see what the big giant companies come out with now!
