A Chinese online publisher created a 15 kilogram heavy wearable broadcasting monster that could be the future of reporting.

A reporter using the so called "Iron man" has become the news at the 12th Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. The 15 kilogram heavy construction allows a single reporter to do multi-channel live video and virtual reality broadcasts.

Built by Guangming Online, "Iron man" is an omnimedia report device that replaces a whole team to collect and broadcast video and virtual reality content.

The wearable system consists of multiple smartphones, tablets and cameras. The devices connect directly to the Guangming Online cloud, which distributes the captured media to the online properties of the publisher.

Iron Man

This setup is genius. I am at the Tag Heuer Connected 2 event in Switzerland in two weeks. I need to up my game and get myself an Iron Man setup. At least I have to figure out how to properly do a live video broadcast and maybe even 360 video.

See more photos of the Iron man podcasting gear on the Chinese Guangmine online site.
