So I just stepped in the front door
after getting back from Japan, and look what was here waiting for me. This is two
weeks worth of mail and probably the most I’ve ever had at one time. Normally,
I’d make unboxings over on my Instagram stories, but, I know I’ve got heaps of 360
and VR gadgets in these boxes. Because I know there’s going to be some stuff that you guys go ‘ooooh’, ‘aaaaah’ over. So, let’s get into it. Package number one. I’m excited. This is something I discovered when I
was in Japan. Someone at the conference was using this really, really long selfie
stick. It was like ridiculously long. And I went straight on to Amazon and bought
myself one. And the brand is called Telesin. Check out this selfie stick.
It’s carbon fiber, and it extends to about 3 meters long.
Oh wow, I’m so excited right now. Oh my God. I can’t even fit this in this shot. I don’t even know how to show you guys.
Because it’s so big and it won’t fit in my shot. Okay, let’s try. Keep going, keep
going, keep going, Keep, no, no. This ain’t gonna work. I’ll
have to go outside and show you. And the cool thing is, it folds down to
something this portable. I’m so excited by this gadget. I posted a tiny planet in
Japan that I shot with this thing. I got up so high with my GoPro fusion. I know
this is gonna be awesome for traveling and getting super high-up perspectives
without needing a drone. Parcel 2. Okay. Cool. All right. Any guesses what
this might be? Who’s that? Recognize that face? That’s me. So this is called Snapspheres and it’s a sphere of a 360 photo. All the pieces have been jumbled
up. But when I assemble these properly, it’s going to turn into a full sphere of
one of my 360 photos that I shot on Mi sphere. So this could potentially prove..
Oh, cool.. It’s magnetic, so they just stick together instantly. So, awesome. So this
could prove to be a good way of printing out 360 photos. Maybe. it’s not that
affordable yet. I’ll be sure to make a video about it soon and let you guys
know my thoughts. It’s the ‘Life in 360’ 360 beanie. How cool am I gonna look now? It’s the new 360 hat. Here is the black one, and blue. There we
go, looking cool. Now this one I’ve really been looking forward to. So this,
right here, is a backpack from GoPro. It’s called the Seeker, and it was built to
hold cameras. But at the very top of it, you have a pouch where you can put five
different cameras. That’s gonna be so handy when I’m walking around with my 12
cameras. Storage for cables and memory cards and stuff like that. There’s also
camera mounts all over this bag. You can put a camera there, you can put a camera
there, you can put a camera on the side. It comes with a chest mount that acts kind
of like a webbing between the two straps so you can fix a camera right on your
chest there, and it see forward. I think it’ll be handy for shooting hyperlapses
hands-free and just mounting 360 cameras to your body. it also has some
mounts here on the side so you can fix selfie stick to it, totally extend it, and
have a really high-up perspective as you’re walking. I’ve really been looking
forward to getting this bag so I’m a very happy boy.
Nice and light, and well-built, but it’s going to have my back. Pun intended. This is the oculus Go. And this is the headset everyone in the 360 and VR
communities have been talking about as the next amazing headset. It’s got a
really high resolution screen inside and you can connect to thousands of apps and
games and view back your 360 footage in high resolution. I’m still not a massive
fan of headsets and I much prefer viewing my content on mobile or computer.
But from what my friends have told me, this really is going to bridge the gap
between headsets and viewing on mobile a little bit. And headsets haven’t really
become a thing because of the price. It’s almost as expensive as buying a camera.
And that’s just too much. Most people want to be able to view in seconds and
not have to pay to do it. Which is why viewing technology needs to be
affordable and awesome. So, I will let you guys know my thoughts on oculus Go as
soon as I get a spare second. Next, I have some gear from Think Tank, who you guys
know is my favorite brand for camera storage. I thought this would be perfect
for a 360 camera and it’s basic accessories. So, it’s a small little pouch
with a few zippers where you could put a camera in this pouch, and all of its
accessories in this pouch. And that folds up to be really small. Think Tank know
how to design camera storage so, looking forward to testing this thing out. So, I
have a laptop case. Just got myself a new MacBook Pro and I need something.. Oh ****, I
think I just scratched it.. and I need a quality laptop bag to store it. This
thing has a whole bunch of pockets so you can include the charger and other
accessories. So, looking forward to using that. This has been Ben’s unboxing. So I
put links to everything down in the description if you liked any of this
stuff. Now I’ve got to go edit some videos. I’ll see you in the next video. BAM!
