Sphericam Puts Google Street View in Your Pocket


The Sphericam is a device that will allow you to capture panoramic views in real-time. It was created by Prague-based designer Jeffry Martin and it contains four synchronized video cameras with fisheye lenses. They transmit a full 360-degree, high-definition video from any location.

Sphericam can record up to 3 hours of video at 25 frames per second, which can be viewed in real-time via its built-in monitor. It also contains GPS, allowing the creation of geographically-referenced 360-degree videos.


Who might want to use Sphericam? What kinds of things can I shoot in 360º?

Sphericam was launched as part of a Kickstarter campaign. It was fully funded and you’ll be able to purchase it through their website for $599.
