Bublcam Wants To Make 360-Degree Cameras Consumer Friendly 0

I guess we’ll never run out of camera balls and 360-degree cameras to cover in this side of the town.

Toronto-based Bubl Technology Inc. has recently started a Kickstarter project called Bublcam, a baseball-size camera ball that is capable of taking spherical photos and videos.

The makers of Bublcam are aiming to give everyone the ability to take 360-degree photos, both for personal and business use.

Bublcam users are going to enjoy 14MP of spherical photos and videos at 1080p at 15 fps and 720p at 30fps. The camera is also Wi-Fi ready so that you can easily share your images or footages on social networks.

What differentiates the Bublcam from other camera balls out there? Well, for starters, the project is almost close (at the time of writing) in reaching their funding goal of $100,000 CAD. That means a lot of people are very interested.

And they still have over 30 days more to go in getting more money from backers.

Another key differentiator is the Bublcam’s tetrahedral design, which allows the camera to produce images with zero blind spots. Thus, creating a “perfect image”.

You can also live stream everything to your PC, mobile devices, or through the internet.

For now, storage is via MicroSD card. Although, the Bublcam team are already working on a feature that will allow you to save your content to cloud storage providers like Dropbox or Google Drive.

The Early Bird Special of $399 CAD is all gone. So you’ll now have to pledge at least $499 CAD if you want to get a first production Bublcam by May of next year. That is, if that one is not also gone.

The Bublcam is going to come with a regular price tag of around $700 to $800 once it becomes available to the general public. However, the team is planning to release a cheaper version of the camera soon.
