One problem with 360° videos is that you usually see a tripod or a hand holding the camera. One exception is the throwable Panono camera, but obviously you’re limited to how long you can keep a ball hovering. Varavon has another alternative, with a three-axis-stabilized gimbal drone that can film a full 360° sphere without being visible in the picture itself.
When I spoke to the manufacturers, they said they hadn’t set a final price for the device yet, but suggested that it would be priced for professional use. “Expect the price to be around $30,000,” I was told. Which is pretty bold, considering that a competitor is available for about one- fifth that price and that the Exo360 is coming down the pipe as well.
Either way, the VR Gimbal drone from Varavon should be available later this year; for now, however, check out a demo video of it in action.
