As an add-on to awarding HoloBuilder with the Theta Developer Contest Grand Prize, Ricoh just presented bitstars with a brand new Theta model S camera!

Many thanks to Ricoh for presenting HoloBuilder with a brand new Theta model S camera

It’s already been a while since bitstars‘ HoloBuilder.com platform was selected as Grand Prize Winner of the Ricoh Theta developer contest. In the same context, Ricoh was now able to excite us again with an unexpected surprise:

The postman just delivered a brand new Theta Model S camera directly to our headquarter’s door, sponsored by Ricoh!

Due to a lucky coincidence our CEO Mostafa Akbari was on site today as well, instead of being in the office in San Francisco. So he was able to use the opportunity and start to unbox the great piece of technology right away. Of course we captured this great moment in proper style in 360 degrees with a Ricoh Theta camera (on PC use Google Chrome for 360° view and make sure to select 1080s resolution):

We are really impressed by the image quality and the numerous improvements that the new device brings along.

The camera will definitely support us essentially at the continuous, further development of HoloBuilder.com and will help us to get more users enthusiastic about great 360-degree content. We would like to express our sincere thanks to Ricoh at this point and are looking forward to a good further cooperation.
