GoPro Virtual Reality to beat VR Porn; will Youtube or Pornhub respond? Clapway

It seems like everyone and their mother is getting in on virtual reality tech. The latest to do so is GoPro. The company recently unveiled VR, a website and free app that will let users share and view virtual reality videos. While the promotion features a wide variety of arts, music sports, and entertainment videos, will it outdo the burgeoning virtual porn industry? And will it destroy sites like Youtube and Pornhub?

GOPRO VR LAUNCHES 360 DEGREE VIDEO

The GoPro VR will feature a new six-camera Omni-rig that will give users a 360-degree video experience. This is hardly their first attempt to spark interest in the technology, though. Last year, GoPro teamed up with Alphabet’s Google. The Odyssey rig uses 16 cameras to record content but at a $15,000 price tag, consumers weren’t exactly encouraged.  Now, the GoPro VR will cost just $5,000. Much cheaper for aspiring filmmakers, but still in a niche market. GoPro has since stepped out of Google’s shadow and seek to take on the VR world alone. For a market that is mostly unproven for the most part, it’s a large risk. If the predictions are correct, though, the industry will be in the billions. For this reason, many companies are scrambling to make a name for themselves in the virtual realm.

YOUTUBE’S TAKE ON VIRTUAL REALITY

YouTube is one of the companies that smells the profit from virtual reality and are diving in head first. YouTube has announced that it will be launching live streaming of 360-degree videos. In addition to that, they will unveil spatial audio for on-demand YouTube content. This gives users a sense of depth, distance and sound intensity. Combine with VR, the 360-degree videos will put users one step closer to physically being in any given environment. Using a desktop, tablet, computer or smartphones, people can use YouTube to attend a concert miles away from the comfort of their own home. It’s a fascinating possibility that has caught the eyes of all kinds of lucrative industries.

PORNHUB GETS STEAMY IN 360 DEGREES

PornHub has also taken great interest in 360-degree virtual reality technology. As one can imagine, porn in the virtual realm is generating some serious excitement. PornHub agrees, which is why they’ve teamed with porn store BaDoing to offer 360-degree content. The best part? It’s absolutely free. PornHub users now have access to the wild and odd experience that is virtual reality porn. There are a few kinks Pornhub needs to iron out first. For one, all the virtual porn videos are in the male perspective. Also, the videos still have ways to go in terms of resolution. Still, porn has a bright and profitable future in the virtual realm.
