You may soon be able to shoot your own virtual reality videos, or even your own virtual reality selfies.

 

According to CNET, a new camera call PMast is cable of shooting virtual reality videos. It was developed by researchers at the University of California at San Diego.

The PMast looks like a metallic box with lenses on the sides. There are five sides that have lenses protruding out and 25-megapixel sensors within. The five lens- sensor modules send data via a fiber-optic link to a carry cart with high-end computers.  These computers do the crunching that produces your immersive VR experience.

According to Joseph Ford, a UCSD professor, the PMast is as compact as a handful of cheap GoPro action cameras but can capture the rich, high-resolution imagery that professionals need.
