Crazy 540 Degree Bullet Time Booth Featuring 130 HTC One Smartphones

By Anthony Thurston on October 21st 2013


I love bullet time effects, ever since I first witnessed the matrix I have love them. Today I came across this interesting bullet time booth setup by Qualcomm to promote and showcase their Snapdragon processors.

The booth was setup in a public park and people were encouraged to come up and have a bullet time scene shot of them. The booth was a rising 540 degree rig with over 130 HTC One smartphones – powered by Qualcomm’s SnapDragon processor – acting as the cameras.

Apparently Qualcomm is taking the booth traveling and it will be in New York City on October 24, 2013. If you are curious about it, or want to have some fun with bullet time and live in the area it sounds like a fun opportunity. If you are interested in them bringing the Snapdragon Booth to your city you can vote on their website. Currently San Francisco is in the lead with 22%.

As cool as the video, and the fact that they set up the booth is, I am slightly confused as to how this showcases the Snapdragon processors. I mean couldn’t any phone with photo/video capability be used to do this? Am I missing something here?

    I agree that even though the video is really cool, any camera could’ve done this…..
    This does showcases the Snapdragon processors by any means….
    But people with no knowledge buy this very easily.
