Electric Skateboarding in Virtual Reality
About The Project
With this project, I wanted to mix two of my favorite hobbies; virtual reality and electric skateboarding. I’ve made several electric skateboarding videos in the past in 2D for my YouTube channel, but I wanted to bring this experience to more people who wouldn’t be willing to ride one themselves. This meant working in an entirely new medium and coming up with an entirely new filming / editing pipeline.
By combining active stabilization technology found on devices such as the Crane M with the VR180 capture of the Lenovo Mirage Camera, I was able to get super stable 4K video in full 3D meant to be viewed in a virtual reality headset.
My YouTube channel showcases self-driving cars, virtual reality, and emerging forms of transportation.
