SpaceVR raises $1.25 million


Last year, SpaceVR used Kickstarter to fund the idea of sending a virtual reality satellite camera into space. Now the company has raised $1.25 million to finally send it into orbit. According to SpaceVR founder Ryan Holmes, its first VR satellite camera, Overview 1, will be sent to the International Space Station and launched into orbit in 2017 via a NanoRacks launcher. Once in orbit, the camera will give users immersive panoramic views of the planet and outer space, and it will allow them to see and and experience 360-degree video content. According to SpaceVR, its VR content is available for space fanatics for $35 for 12 months.
