Bubl Technology Inc., the creator of the fully spherical camera, Bublcam, announced on Wednesday it has officially completed its initial round of shipments, amounting to thousands of cameras to its Kickstarter backers and pre-order customers. Early adopters of this booming technology have shown great enthusiasm as to now having the ability to create spherical and VR-based content with ease.
The Bublcam captures 100% of the spherical range in photos and videos, also called bubls, without any blind spots. An end to end solution, users can capture, view and share all within Bubl’s spherical media ecosystem.
The Bublcam can be operated independently with button presses or by remotely connecting with the Bubl Xplor mobile application for iOS or Android. Users can view their media within the mobile application or online using Bubl’s Cloud Service: bubl.io. The Bubl Xplor app also provides users with a stream of curated spherical content to view using touch, gyroscope or in VR mode with an accompanying mobile phone VR headset.
Sean Ramsay, CEO of Bubl Technology, stated:
“We are all so happy and enthused to get the Bublcam in the hands of some of our biggest supporters and see the amazing moments they are creating. This is a huge milestone for our company and is just the beginning of bringing spherical technology to everyone.”
Following the successful Kickstarter initiative, which raised nearly $350,000 CAD, the Bublcam has come a long way. Bubl’s simple and complete workflow for the creation of spherical- and VR-based content differentiates the company from all other competitors.
Additional features include professional controls, such as HDR and time lapse via the mobile application, full access to the Bubl Cloud Service, bubl.io, for storage and management of media, and online sharing through WiFi or cellular connection. Bublcam content is compatible with VR headsets, including Google Cardboard, Samsung’s Gear VR and Oculus Rift.
The Bublcam is currently in backorder due to popular demand and is priced at $799.
