SPHERA VR-X / 360° x 180° digital camera


This camera model consists of a patent realm innovation and a functional design solution.

The patented optics produce high-quality spherical (360° x 180°) images and videos without parallax distortions.

The detachable display allows taking images by holding the camera straight up. The results can be viewed by moving the display around the observer.

The digital camera captures not just part of the view but the entire surrounding, a moment in time.

Potential users include, realtors, insurance assessors, security personnel, and travelers. Everyone could benefit from the new features offered by the SPHERA VR-X camera system.
