If everything goes to plan, the world’s smallest 360° camera should start shipping in October. It will be called the Nico360, and you should be able to purchase one for $199 (unless you donated at least $99 to the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, which will get you a Nico360 for $99). Something that seems to appeal to many, since it already reached almost 400% of its initial (flexible) goal, with another month to go.

The Nico360 has specs you wouldn’t expect, given its size (1.8 x 1.8 x 1.1 inch) and its 96 grams. It’s shoots in two directions at the same time, through two 16MP aspherical lenses, good for 25MP still images or 2560p x 1440p video’s at 30 frames per second. The camera requires no extra software to re-render videos as 360° ones, because it provides built-in stitching.

You can save all your imagery on the 32GB built-in storage, or live-stream it over 5G WiFi. The camera will also accept microSD-cards and will be able to produce image stabilized content for VR headsets. All that comes with rugged waterproofing, a stereo microphone and Bluetooth 4.0. And a Battery Selfie Stick will be available for $39.
