TTT’s website has just been updated, and with it a slew of new images highlighting the elegance of Project Beyond’s design ethos. A short video accompanies the imagery (see above) which demonstrates at a very high level what the aim of Project Beyond is – getting great video content onto the Gear VR platform. The images are surprisingly candid, with exploded views of lenses and the unit as a whole.
