Create Your Own 3D 4K VR Movie With LucidCam


LucidCam is a cheap and compact, lightweight stereoscopic 3D VR camera : $499, 227 grams (8 ounces). The unit sports two front-facing fisheye lenses and gives you a 180-degree spherical 3D visual field of view for each lens. It captures both video and still images at 4K per lens, with video capture at 30 fps. Details and video demo here under.

No Software Stitching Needed

The 3D quality makes it deep and immersive, but the 180-degree angle also makes shooting and producing more accessibl because the output is internally stitched (no extra software required), and it is compatible with conventional photo and video applications.

Uncompresses Sound

It also records stereo audio via 48Hz microphones, which produce non-compressed, editable 16-bit audio. 

Ease of Use

LucidCam is functional right out of the box, packed with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, though you can plug an additional 32GB into it on a microSD card. Memory usage is 50 MB/minute.

The lithium-ion battery lasts about 1.5 hours of shooting.

Lucid VR app

LucidCam works through Wifi with its own mobile helper app, which lets you control the camera from your phone, observe previews of your shots, view your finished stills and videos, and even share the finished output via Facebook and YouTube.
