GoPro has officially announced its VR camera system, which uses a six-camera array to capture images in 360 degrees. The company announced the new VR camera system on stage at the Recode Code conference by GoPro CEO Nick Woodman.




The company will be offering up the GoPro Six-Camera Spherical Solution which takes 6 x GoPro Hero4 units, which all capture high-resolution images and video in 360 degrees. The company has plans to sell the six-camera solution in the second half of 2015, with a price of over $3000. GoPro was reportedly in development of a VR system in concept only, but when Facebook acquired Oculus VR last year, the company put its VR camera system into motion.


Woodman said: "VR is going to be popular just based on gaming alone. But for VR to be appealing to non-gamers it's going to need content. It's going to need photo and video content, and GoPro is positioned better than anyone in the world".
