Crazy Camera Rig Captures Volumetric VR Video with 14 Cameras and LiDAR

HypeVR is working to bring live-action volumetric 360 video to VR. The company’s crazy camera rig, built to capture the necessary data, is a mashup of high-end cameras and laser scanning tech.
HypeVR recently shot a brief demonstration of the output of their rig, which they say can capture ‘volumetric’ VR video that allows users to move around in a limited space within the video, similar to Lytro’s Light field capture which we saw the other day. Traditional 360 video capture solutions don’t allow any movement, effectively locking the user’s head to one point in 3D space, reducing comfort and immersion.
