Virtual / Augmented reality, 360 degree cameras, 3D cameras, drones and more can change the way people create or view and interact with content (brands movies, games and more). As well as entertainment, huge commercial opportunities exist for sales videos, pitch videos or training videos.
Here’s a short video we put together demonstrating some of the products available now and coming on stream (video produced in 30mins using using one of the video templates on VideoAgora.com)

It has 3D scanning, active background removal for a green screen effect, and gesture controls without needing to touch the screen. Of course, it comes with some ‘Mission Impossible’ style security features so that it can tell if you are who you say you are. It’s likely that your next pc purchase may come with a 3D camera built in or as an optional extra.
