Lenovo is making a camera specifically for YouTube’s VR180 format


Virtual reality (VR) is undeniably cool, but think about just how much of the experience is wasted. Total immersion requires a complete sphere of video (“360”), but humans can only see roughly half of that experience at any given moment.
