Mettle Storyteller Tips:

Remote VR Camera: Chic , Center of Human Centered Interaction for Coexistence, showed off a VR camera that would enable gaze directed immersive video chat between two remote parties. Wearing the Rift, a stereoscopic camera moves in tandem in a remote location. Essentially, it's a video chat where the user on the other side of the chat can look around your room and vice versa. Being a video chat geek, we were very intrigued with what we could do with this!
Omni Closeup: GoPro is taking pre-orders for its Omni 360 camera which includes pixel level genlock. In other words, the 6 different cameras are all synced. Does this mean gone are the days of the clap and spin? We caught up with Gopro to get the 411 on its battery life and whether the new design reduces Hero 4 Black's overheating issues.
Spatial Audio Mics: Sennheiser showed off its spatial audio microphone that will be available
Vibration Pacs: Beyond immersive video and spatial audio, another input for VR storytellers is vibration. These Supacs are showing up with more and more VR experiences. Take for instance KonceptVR's Rocket Launch. You not only got to experience a launch closeup in a headset, you got to feel the launchpad vibrate as the rocket shot upward!
