Whether you have RM30 or RM300,000 to spend, you should be able to find something for that special someone, this holiday season.
If I were to pick a theme for tech in 2016, it would be creating immersion. Everything from smartphones, cameras and the development of virtual reality has all been about giving the user (that’s us!) the most amount of immersion possible.
With how popular VR and 360-degree got over the course of the year, there’s no doubt that many of you are interested in trying your hand at creating and sharing such content. But which 360-degree camera do you get? If I were to buy one, it would definitely be the Samsung Gear 360. Here’s why.
When was the last time you went to the shops, bought a newspaper, sat down and read it from cover to cover?
I honestly can’t remember the last time I did that. It was probably for a college assignment or something. Ask someone ten or fifteen years ago and they would’ve probably thought the fact that someone like me existed was absurd. But that’s the thing about technology: It’s ruthless.
It will devour everything in its path, all in the name of moving forward and while that’s brilliant, it’s also incredibly scary. I studied Journalism and during my four years in college, my lecturers all insisted that the newspaper will always be around as a medium. Then I see stories like these, and videos like these and suddenly, I’m not so sure anymore.
The same could probably be said about film. With how accessible, portable and amazing 360-degree cameras have got over the years, is this the beginning of the end for traditional rectangular filmmaking?
Samsung Malaysia has finally brought in its latest Gear accessories to complement its current Galaxy flagship smartphones. This includes the long awaited Gear Fit2 smart fitness watch and its Gear IconX wireless earbuds.
Launched at MWC 2016, Samsung has finally confirmed when they’ll be releasing their little golf-ball shaped Samsung Gear 360 camera.
Suria KLCC was alive with the sound of roaring fans as Samsung officially launched the Galaxy S7 edge locally, though, we suspect more fans were roaring because of South Korean superstar Lee Kwang Soo, the phone got some hype too I’m sure. Besides the phone launch, Samsung also revealed that two big things would hit our shores later this year — Samsung Pay and the Gear 360.
Remember this little golf ball from Samsung? It’s tiny and one of the most consumer friendly 360-cameras on the market — it even has its own tripod!
Looking sweet is one thing, but what most of you are concerned with is how it performs when shooting 360-degree video. Wonder no more as Samsung have uploaded several videos demonstrating the shooting and stitching capabilities of their tiny Gear 360.
Besides the gargantuan launch of Samsung‘s new flagships, they’ve also bundled a sweet little 360 camera called the Gear 360 just to spice things up. And I’m not kidding when I say sweeeeeeeet. It looks like something cute and cuddly out of a children’s novel that you just know is going to be made into a million plush toys and its own movie.
The design philosophy is pretty obvious here: It’s clearly a golf ball.
