LUUV Publishes First 360° Video Made with Ricoh THETA S


Dear Companists,

This week, we published the world's first stabilized 360° video made with the Ricoh THETA S. While filming this video, we have not just used solidLUUV, but we have also used our electronic module autoLUUV for the first time. The results speak for themselves: LUUV products are a must for all 360° shots!*



360° and virtual reality filming are two of the most important developments within the motion picture industry. Nikon recently introduced its first 360° camera to the public, Samsung is selling its new Galaxy S7 flagship smartphone bundled with special VR glasses ,  and action camera manufacturer GoPro acquired 360° start-up Kolor last year.

Studies estimate that in 2016, as many as 2.5 million VR glasses and more than 200,000 cameras with a 360° recording feature will be sold. Given that there is no affordable consumer camera except for the Ricoh THETA S that we tested, these are impressive estimates.


LUUV 360 Degrees


Thus far, professional 360° filming has been possible only through fixed cameras because footage recorded with moving cameras looked very shaky and rather unpleasant when viewed through virtual-reality glasses. Consequently, LUUV products are solving a major problem of 360° and virtual-reality filming.


WeWork Interview


At the end of this update, we also have something to read for you: Tobias has given an interview to the magazine of major U.S. co-working company WeWork and – together with the founders of Number26, GoButler, Clue, and EyeEm – has explained what makes the Berlin start-up scene special from an international perspective.

If you are interested in personally trying out our products and meeting our team, please email, and we will make an appointment with you in Berlin.


Best regards,


P.S. You can also find us on FacebookTwitterYouTubeInstagram, and Medium.


* Information on handling: For a full 360° perspective, you can simply change the direction by dragging the picture with your mouse. On a smartphone, we recommend that you open the YouTube app and turn the smartphone in the desired direction.



Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
