Selected by NASA and National Geographic, the Vuze VR camera is now out of this world…literally

Vuze camera has just arrived on the International Space Station (ISS) to capture exclusive VR footage

London, December 4th 2017; The Vuze VR Camera, the world’s first 3D-360 degree virtual reality camera that captures professional quality video combined with 3D audio at an accessible price, is now on board the ISS.

Selected by NASA and National Geographic and sent to an altitude of 408km above the Earth to join astronauts on board the orbiting ISS, the Vuze VR Camera will be used by Expedition 53 astronaut Paolo Nespoli (@astro_paolo) of the European Space Agency to capture VR footage for a new National Geographic series called “One Strange Rock”. Nespoli will use the Vuze camera to create VR experiences of life inside the space station, allowing everyone here on earth to join in the action and experience what it’s like to be in space, through cinematic 4K, 360 VR.

One Strange Rock is a documentary showing the story of Earth as it’s never been seen it before. Coming to National Geographic in 2018.

The camera was sent into space on the Cygnus cargo spacecraft along with 3,500kg of cargo which included a variety of science experiments, technology demonstrations, Holiday gifts from the astronauts’ families and the ingredients for their Thanksgiving dinner.

Shahar Bin-Nun, CEO of Humaneyes:
“This is an incredibly exciting time for us. We are delighted to have been selected by and associated with two of the world’s leading and most adventurous organisations. Partnering with NASA and National Geographic for this project will result in some incredible footage captured by our VR camera, showcasing its true potential.”
