ORBI's First Ever 360° Recording Eyewear In 4K Surpasses Expectations on Indiegogo

New video recording glasses put eyes on the back of your head with hands-free capture of 4K video in 360-degrees. This is a new innovation in a booming industry and a step toward fully immersive VR recordings for adventurers and action sports.

After two weeks on Indiegogo, ORBI's campaign for ORBI Prime, the world’s first 360° video-recording eyewear, has surpassed it's funding goal of $75,000. Designed for outdoors enthusiasts, adventurers, and action sports users, ORBI Prime is powered by a front edge video processing chip and firmware, and offers an effortless way to capture life’s most exciting moments in full 4K 360° without bulky and camera mounts or expensive rigs.

“We want to make something that lets you capture your unique perspective with the world and never miss a moment, no matter where you are. In surveying the pain points of current action camera users, we realized there wasn’t a truly hands-free and high-quality option available,” says Iskander Rakhmanberdiyev, Co-Founder and CEO. “So we designed something that is not only incredibly powerful, but also aesthetically pleasing, comfortable, and easy to use.”

The action camera market is climbing to new heights, with Statista reporting the market valued at $4.36B in 2016. 10.5 million units have already been sold in 2016, with those numbers projected to reach almost 20 million by 2016. More and more people are capturing and sharing their adventures online, with Syndicate predicting 74% of Internet traffic being dominated by video in 2017.

Share Your Vision from Every Angle
Orbi Prime brings together the best of wearable and sports camera technology for a unique video recording experience. Users no longer need complicated set ups and mounts for their cameras, and no need to hold a camera for an extended period of time. Small, inconspicuous, and supremely portable, Orbi Prime offers immersive videos with an effortless recording experience, so you can capture and share every adventure and every moment. Perfect for seasoned adventurers and weekend warriors alike, Orbi Prime is with you from your favorite concert to the summit of Kilimanjaro.

By pairing 4 cameras mounted discreetly along the frame and with video software developed by top engineering veterans from Electronic Arts, ORBI Prime offers video stitching up to 30 frames per second, 128 GB of storage, built-in Wi-Fi, MP4 audio capture, and micro-USB charging.

To fully take advantage of their hand-free and perfectly integrated video capture method, ORBI Prime says you shouldn’t limit it to just action sports, either. Imagine using them to record a football game, or to share an amazing vacation with friends and family. The company even has its sights set on commercial applications such as real estate, construction, tourism, and advertising.

In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can choose between five colors of the glasses at a special pre-launch price. Each ORBI Prime comes with a charging case, USB connector, safety strap, and lens cloth. Backers have until December 1 to pre-order, and can expect to receive their rewards in Summer of 2017.

“After a lifetime of exposure to high tech and innovation, we realized there was still no true seamless wearable tech-device in the market; and definitely not one that would transform your eyes in a window for the world to experience true 360 moments in such a cool and WOW manner.”
-Borja Lopez, Project Manager
