This remote controlled camera car, aka "The Droid" was used by National Geographic Explorer Martin Edström and his team to capture immersive 360 degree video from the middle of a pride of wild lions in Zambia. Spearheading the wildlife film-making progress into content for 360 and Virtual Reality requires a lot of new thinking - as you have to get closer to the lions than ever before. This remote controlled camera car, covered with an oil-barrel, turned out to be key in getting the footage.
