This means the project achieved its first two stretch goals — producing the camera in multiple colors, and making it dust-proof and water-resistant.
The tennis-ball-sized camera was priced at between $1,300 and $1,700 for its Kickstarter supporters, with shipping estimated for this December.

Typical applications include real estate walk-throughs, first-person experiences such as bike rides or parachute jumps, concerts, immersive storytelling, and more.
