July 19, 2012 – Putnam, CT – RemoteReality was selected by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to demonstrate its new Compact 360-degree Optic prototype in the Eureka Park Exhibit at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV. Eureka Park is a special area at CES that showcases innovative new NSF-funded technology with high commercial potential.
RemoteReality’s new compact optic, developed under a Phase 2 SBIR with NSF, enables high resolution cameras to capture a full 360-degrees of video. The system uses a unique arrangement of mirrors and lenses, and features no moving parts. Similar systems have been developed by RemoteReality for defense and homeland security applications; this new compact version is aimed at commercial applications for wide angle video.
