Drone Volt Enters the VR World with Janus 360-Degree Drone
Drone Volt, a French manufacturer of professional drones, is taking an innovative dive into the work of virtual reality with its new Janus 360 drone, a product designed for and dedicated to the creation of 360-degree, virtual reality content.
VR, as we know, is a category that has an enormous future ahead of it. Data that Drone Volt cited from Goldman Sachs Research shows that the VR and AR (augmented reality) market is expected to hit about $80 billion in the next decade. What is helping to make that prediction come to fruition is the broad application of the technology. VR and AR content is already making inroads in cinematography, tourism, advertising, sports and sports training, gaming, design and architecture, construction, real estate, and many other industries.
Drone Volt and their research and development department saw an opportunity to meet the needs of this strategic market, and they integrated their technologies to develop the new Janus 360 drone. The quadcopter comes equipped with 10 4K cameras that are spread over two heads. They have the ability to take still images and video that, once assembled and processed, provide an immersive 3D experience for “virtual tours and videos” in 360 degrees.
