Many representatives of Hamburg’s founder’s scene are heading to South by Southwest in Austin, Texas this week for the key U.S. creative fair in the digital and music industry. Young entrepreneurs will pitch their companies’ latest ideas to international investors at the world’s biggest festival of this kind. And similar to 2015, a Hamburg-based company has reached the final round of SXSW. This year, “Spherie” is presenting the first virtual reality drone, which is believed to be capable of delivering 3D data and 360 degree film footage.
