Luna is the world’s smallest 360-degree camera

With the rise of virtual reality and browsers able to support more versatile forms of video, 360-degree cameras should be about to take off. This is one of the smallest around.

It’s called Luna, and it promises to make shooting 360-degree video as simple as taking photos with your phone. It uses dual 190-degree fish-eye lens tech, and has no moving parts, so should be hardwearing enough to survive some adventures.

It’s waterproof too, and has gyro-stabilisation to keep the footage steady.

When it comes time to share your footage, it has Wi-Fi, so you can preview the video on your smartphone, wirelessly save it to your device, share it on social media, and even livestream it.

Using the mobile app and a Google Cardboard viewer, you can also view your videos in virtual reality.

With a diameter of just 6cm, it’s small enough to fit in your hand. And weighing just 180g, it’s light enough to take everywhere.

It’s a doddle to use, too. Click it once to take a panoramic photo, and twice to start recording 360-degree videos. And that’s it.

As well as recording in 360 degrees, you can video in flat mode, VR mode and planet mode.

It’s passed its funding goal and will ship in October. Prices start at $299 (£197).
