First Encounter

My first encounter with Kyosho, a radio controlled model manufacture and sales company with a long history, was more than 10 years ago. Back then, Kyosho released their Mini-Z series radio controlled models, which had a brand new concept; they requested my assistance in promoting their product online. This was the beginning of our relationship. Since then, we have worked together to promote Kyosho products in innovative ways, such as immediately launching an official social networking service for Mini-Z users and livestreaming races in 2007. Ever since, I have been involved in several Kyosho projects as a partner, including the promotion of a series of drones designed by Kyosho.

Entering the VR Business

Kid's Plates launched its VR business (BtoB) in 2013. The issue back then was to make VR more accessible, bypassing the need for expensive HMDs when promoting VR products. We developed Rukuruku as an alternative which allows smartphones to be used for VR promotions for a monthly cost. Furthermore, in our quest to achieve deeper immersion into the VR environment, we were constantly thinking of ways to solve the issue of the photographer's body being visible inside omnidirectional footage.

An Inevitable Fortuity

Since around 2014, there were multiple occasions where we discussed the possibilities of VR, but in 2016 we had an especially important talk about radio controlled toys in the future in response to the recent surge in drone popularity as well as the new regulations that came into effect. As a result of this talk, we began the joint development of a product that combines my idea from the development of Rukuruku - an unmanned device capable of shooting VR footage - with Kysho's technological superiority gained through half a century of experience in developing radio controlled models.

Outlook

The world of omnidirectional footage and VR movies is still scrambling to create standards for everything, including shooting and producing the footage. Kid's Plates has numerous ideas and visions about the potential that the future holds and the development of this technology. We plan to develop and release more products in the future that provide solutions to various issues that occur during VR footage production, or provide improvements that make the creation of VR footage easier or more flexible; it is our goal to provide these solutions to people around the world who need them. Our first project to complete is a version of Dolly360 that remains stable at high speeds. This will enable the shooting of speedy omnidirectional footage. The addition of an automatic tracking system will also allow users to shoot videos such as guided tours featuring a guide leading the way. We have also started working on creating a method that allows for uniform management of real and virtual footage, enabling a new kind of video experience. A demo version of this project will be available as soon as within 2016, or early 2017 at the latest.
