Meet the Sphericam 2, a 4K 360-degree camera designed with virtual reality applications in mind which brandishes an amazing global shutter of 60FPS - a world's first.



Currently sitting at over $220,000 pledged of its $150,000 goal with 14 days remaining, it's more than likely that this Kickstarter will reach $300,000 and beyond in the last fortnight of operations. Created by Jeffrey Martin, this 100% spherical capture camera claims to supply zero blind spots in recording and comes with a myriad of attachments white promising to ensure a smooth recording experience.


Even complete with a dog attachment, the Sphericam 2 further offers RAW video recording, all six lenses to ship fully synchronized, automatic real-time stitching in post production and minimal parallax. If you're interested in donating to this 4096x2048 resolution camera, please head to the official Kickstarter page.
