POP CAMERA Virtual Reality Kit | A Revolutionary DIY Device for Creating Immersive 360° Video Experiences Powered by Seeed Fusion PCBA and Raspberry Pi CM4

Creating 360° x 360° spherical video can be a complex and difficult task. However, Villmer, the founder of POP, invested significant time conducting research and development in order to create the world’s first DIY 360° Virtual Reality camera that users can assemble themselves. The product, called POP CAMERA, caters to the diverse needs of the market and sets a new standard for creating immersive 360° video experiences.

Introducing POP CAMERA

POP, a start-up focused on immersive technologies such as Virtual and Augmented Reality, has recently developed the POP CAMERA kit, an innovative new product that allows users to assemble their own portable 360° video camera and share content online: The POP CAMERA is powered by Seeed Fusion PCBA and Raspberry Pi CM4. The kit is designed to be convenient, versatile, and accessible to anyone interested in exploring the potential of 360° Virtual Reality video.

The POP CAMERA kit offers a range of features that make it a powerful tool for capturing and sharing immersive 360° VR experiences. 

These include stabilization, wifi and cellular control, cloud storage, audio support, GPS location, live streaming, a free POP account and free software updates. The kit includes: (1) two cameras, (2) a Raspberry Pi CM4 module  (3) battery, (4 & 5) a front and back case, (6) a USB-C cable, (7) POP module (made by Seeed!)  and (8) assembly mounts.

What challenges did the POP development team face, and how did Seeed Fusion help them solve it?

One of the notable challenges faced by the POP development team was designing the camera as a DIY kit while ensuring ease of assembly and user safety. To address this, extensive online documentation was created to guide users through the assembly and usage process. Collaboration with Seeed, the Seeed Fusion PCBA service team, and Raspberry Pi was crucial in successfully achieving the desired quality and reliability standards.
