How Reality Got a New Workflow: Facebook Partners with Otoy to Create VR Tools

Otoy and Facebook recently announced a partnership in which a Facebook Surround 360 camera will be usable within an Otoy Orbx workflow.

This is an interesting revelation if viewed within the context of the Facebook Spaces Beta trailer.

The 360 video/image and volumetric spheres mentioned in this workflow will no doubt feed into Facebook’s long term evolution into an AR/VR/MR system.

As an aside, I’m calling it HyperReality if anyone asks what I do for a living.
