Sphericam 2: 4K 360 Degree Video Camera

Jul 10, 2015

Category: Tech

Sphericam 2 is a 360 degree camera which allows users to capture everything around them in high resolution without any blind spots. The resulting videos give watchers the unique ability to move the camera to any view they’d like for the video they’re watching.

While the quality isn’t quite the best just yet, the technology is impressive and the Sphericam 2 is beaming without potential already. The camera is slightly smaller than a tennis ball and contains six cameras in total that each record in stunning 4K resolution (which is diluted when uploaded to YouTube, unfortunately). The device is WiFi capable and is able to stream content right to your desktop or smartphone. In fact, users can use the mobile app to start/stop recording, monitor the view while recording, transfer, view and edit their footage on-the-fly. The Sphericam 2 is also VR ready, so when Samsung Gear and other VR headsets become more popular, the device will be ready to capture footage. The Sphericam 2 is available for early backers on Kickstarter for $1,399. [Purchase]
