GoPro to introduce 360 degree camera soon

The rumor mills have been churning at full speed the past 24 hours since Nick Woodman, CEO and Founder of GoPro, announced at CES that they would be releasing a “more casual” 360-degree video camera.

Currently, such rigs are expensive as they require multiple GoPro cameras, and splicing the footage together so that the video timelines work synchronously is labor intensive. Woodman, whose company already releases 360 videos on YouTube, said they would release “even more” this year while working in conjunction with YouTube.

The massive speculation that has been surrounding GoPro’s drone, dubbed “Karma” is that this will be the dividing feature between it and other multi-copters, such as industry dominating, DJI’s Phantom. No word on if that would be the case.
