While it looks like some alien pod getting ready to decend on the earth, the Ozo is a 360 camera that can be attached to a stand, drone, or other device to stream and record events. During NAB, Ozo was live streaming in 3 different spots around the convention center. Not only will the Ozo capture 360 video, the system contains “spatial audio mixing”.

GoPano Panoramic Video from iPhone at #CES Unveiled

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSCheck this out. There are many lenses which improve the iPhone camera. But how many turn your camera into a 360° image — or video for that matter.
