Between Facebook and Nokia and GoPro and Google and others I’m probably leaving out, I think a lot about virtual reality. Nokia reveals Ozo, a futuristic new camera for filming virtual reality:
When Microsoft bought Nokia’s handset business in 2013, two big questions hovered above all. The first was “why?” and we never got a convincing answer: Microsoft wrote off $7.6 billion in Nokia costs this month, higher than the purchase price. The second question was what would become of the rest of Nokia, which had just exited the business it had once dominated. The company said it planned to focus on maps, network infrastructure, and “advanced technologies” — but what those technologies would be went unsaid.
Today Nokia is beginning to lay out its vision.
We better all start thinking about it, at least a little.
