Virtual Reality Backcountry Snowboarding Teaser

“Danny Davis, Scotty Lago and Jack Mitrani teamed up with Brainfarm, Firstborn, Samsung, and Mountain Dew to create a heliboarding virtual reality experience using GoPro cameras in the Utah backcountry. The full VR experience is at https://milkvr.com/ or the Milk VR app, but you need a VR headset like the Oculus Rift or new Samsung Gear VR.

In the past, the production team has used a camera orb with 14 GoPro cameras attached to it but that didn't work in the backcountry, so for this project they were forced to simplify and created a handheld VR capture device using only 6 GoPro cameras (3 for each eye). Having a smaller camera rig was necessary to allow the pro riders to do the filming because none of the production team could keep up with them!”
