Sphericam ends successful Kickstarter with $460K
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.
The camera can be used to make 360-degree videos that can be watched on any computer or smartphone in regular mode and, on Google Cardboard headsets, in immersive virtual reality mode.
Typical applications include real estate walk-throughs, first-person experiences such as bike rides or parachute jumps, concerts, immersive storytelling, and more.
