Very interesting because this shows how Virtual Worlds are still important for VR and not just dedicated engines or specific platforms, but this guy should choose better where He makes the video - VR or RL ? VR or RL ?

What is the definition of scoop?
Because I could have sworn I blogged about this a few days before UploadVR...

Hi, Wagner! I'm the creator of the HL port of Ardueen, Drax, Phil, and Jo's 360 video. The image of the blonde fellow is a co-worker of mine and seeing him in the context of this article doesn't make a lot of sense.

Also, I wrote a rebuttal to the person who didn't understand why anyone would put a 360 video in a HoloLens. There's ample reason, which I describe.

Jo -- thanks, updated to credit you with the scoopage.

Jim, thanks for commenting -- I added the screengrab of the dude to convey AR aspect. (Also, was hard to get a good screengrab of the SL feed that didn't look weird and washed out.) I see what you're saying in the Upload VR comment, but as you acknowledge there, "it may not leverage the value-add of mixed-reality in the HoloLens at this stage". I'd love to see a video using this 6 way camera tech that does do that -- are you creating any, by chance?
