French startup GIROPTIC has taken on the likes of GoPro with its new virtual reality 360cam. It is the first ultra high definition 360° camera that can capture quality videos and photos and records video at 20-30fps at 2K and takes photos at 4K resolution (think timelapse). Some other features include Wi-Fi streaming and a full waterproof body. GIROPTIC was initially launched on Kickstarter with a promise to deliver a convenient product you can take anywhere with an appealing simplistic design. The three 185° fish-eye lenses captures and places images together to produce an all around view, thus resulting in an picture worthy of sharing with others.
