LucidCam claims to be the first consumer stereoscopic 3D camera in the world. This wearable 3D camera lets users capture 180° footage in 1080p resolution for offline viewing or direct streaming on the go.

LucidCam reached its $100,000 crowdfunding goal on IndieGogo on November 30, 2015. On April 13, 2016, Lucid VR, the company behind Lucid Cam, announced that it has raised an additional 2.1 million dollars and partnered with Winstron Coporation, a Taiwan-based ODM, to manufacture the cameras.

Features

This pocket-sized wearable 3D camera can be mounted on the chest and used during any physical activity. The 180° wide-angle lenses work together with special audio to produce an immersive 3D experience with very high image quality. The team behind this camera wanted to make the whole experience as accessible as possible. Image and video capture use only one button to let users focus on the activity they are engaged in rather than forcing them to consider many different settings options.

Hardware

The small camera can be worn on the chest, mounted on a bicycle or directly on a hat. Right now, the two stereoscopic cameras capture full HD resolution 3D video at 30 frames per second. If the stretch goal on Indiegogo is reached, this could potentially extend up to 360 degrees. The camera includes HDMI output and the built-in lithium-ion battery provides up to 1 hour of battery life.
