  • Vittorio Brumotti in Livigno

    For years I have enjoyed watching the Tour De France and often call it the French Landscape program. In this case we start with Vittorio Brumotti cycling with his team before becoming distracted and going to enjoy some mountain bike trails, some balancing on barriers, floating in a swimming pool, enjoying a running carpet and […]

  • Experimenting with Spherical photographs

    Experimenting with Spherical photographs

    I was in Spain with the Ricoh Theta S last week so I took the opportunity to experiment with the Ricoh Theta S in a number of locations. What I like about such a device is that it takes a click to get pictures. I experimented with a manfrotto monopod and a smaller monopod. The […]

  • Vlogging on a Via Ferrata with the Theta S

    Vlogging on a Via Ferrata with the Theta S

    Vlogging on a Via Ferrata with the Theta S by Ricoh is not only feasible but interesting. Earlier today I went to the Via Ferrata du Fort L’écluse in the French Region of Ain. This Via Ferrata goes long the nice rock face next to the climb. The purpose of this video is to bring […]

  • The Immersive Video market is coming of age

    The Immersive Video market is coming of age

    I see this as a good, not a bad thing. It means that 2016 is the year where we can experiment on what content and story types work best for VR. It gives us time to establish workflows and intuitions about what subjects will work in VR and which ones are better left to UHD […]

Virtual reality is a great way of enabling people to get some of the sensations of rock […]

  • Computer Literacy and Virtual Reality experiences

    Computer Literacy and Virtual Reality experiences

    Samsung Gear VR – Oculus rift – HTC Vive

  • Archery with the HTC Vive

    Virtual Reality is a great opportunity to practice skills and keep fit at the same time. It’s fun to watch people play these immersive games and get carried away. In Holopoint you’re an archer shooting at targets and they shoot back at you. You need to dodge out of the way to avoid being hit. […]

  • The Immersive Video Experience

    The Immersive Video Experience

      I was at the World Virtual Reality Forum in Crans Montana this weekend as a volunteer. During this time I was able to try many of the demonstrations and get a real feel for the potential of 360° and immersive videos. I was also able to listen to people comment on what they appreciated about […]

  • Springwatch – Some Swiss bees

    Spring is finally back and the fun sports are about to start again. Via Ferrata, Rock climbing, hiking and other sports will be possible and we will see what new places I explore. While waiting for the season to start properly I took some time to film bees pollinating a form of apple tree. The images […]
