Capture Your World Like Never Before With 360-Degree Waterproof Camera That Fits In Your Palm

For the first time in a long while I'm completely floored and super excited about a new video gadget. The 360Cam is basically a GoPro-esque camera that captures 360-degree panoramic video and photos. Accompanying apps and software allow you to easily view and share the resulting clips and photos with ease.

Already reaching their Kickstarter goal, you still have until the end of June to get in on the early bird price of $249. I know I'll be picking up one of these bad boys. Imagine the possibilities. The badboy is completely waterproof, wifi-enabled and there's even an attachment to leave it plugged into a light socket and use it as a home surveillance system. Build in web-streaming capabilities will allow simple sharing of any event no matter how big or small. How cool is that?!

Created by France-based Giroptic, the tiny device might remind you of the roof-mounted camera seen on Google Street View cars. But this isn't a tool for large corporations; it's designed for the average user.

Housed in a blue and black plastic egg-like shell, the device allows you to capture 360-degree HD video and photos, all while delivering the device's current status on its surface via LED display. The display can indicate the camera's current mode (Time Lapse, Burst, Photo, Video, Live) and count down during timed photos.

The device comes with a free Android and iOS app that allows you to remotely control the 360cam's photo, video, GPS and gyroscopic settings, as well as giving you the ability to use your smartphone as a viewfinder. It also boasts three embedded microphones, Micro USB charging port, and SD card slot (up to 64GB), and a rechargeable lithium ion battery that can maintain about one hour of video shooting at 25 frames per second (assuming Wi-Fi is not enabled).

Early backers of the device will receive the 360cam in August, and the company expects to start selling the camera in November for about $499.
