The Indiegogo campaign has a few days to go and eCapture Technologies is currently 90% funded of their $20,000USD flexible goal.

After a successful crowdfunding campaign back in 2016 for the LyfieEye add-on camera for mobile devices, eCapture Technologies is back with the LyfieEye200 360° VR/AR camera.

As you can see in the video above, the LyfieEye200 attaches to your Android smartphone via Micro-USB or a USB Type-C adapter. The small and light 360⁰ camera allows you to capture 360⁰ HD images, videos, and livestreams to social media.

With dual fish-eye lens (>180° Field Of View per lens) and real-time image stitching, LyfieEye200 captures full 360° images, so nothing and no one is out of shot. With 3K stills and videos, the camera boasts professional resolution at an everyday price.

The companion application allows for easy viewing and editing of recorded videos and images. Two additional apps allow for VR images and AR audio experiences using mapping and deep learning technology.

The duo LyfieRoam and LyfieStroll apps makes it possible for anyone to create virtual worlds and augmented reality maps, both indoors and outdoors. Scan any area, insert text, videos or 3D models to virtually ‘float’ in front of your favorite places or a specific area to augment reality.

eCapture Technologies is also offering up a number of optional accessories to make webcast and streaming easier. These accessories include the LyfieFoot laptop connection, LyfieStand table stand, Lyfie Pouch, and a number of different cable extensions.

The Indiegogo campaign has a few days to go and eCapture Technologies is currently 90% funded of their $20,000USD flexible goal. A number of early bird specials are still available which offer the LyfieEye200 for as low as $89USD depending on the package you select. As with any crowdfunding campaign, there is a risk supporting them. We’ve recently heard about several that we’ve written about that have failed or are having issues. Our reporting on Indiegogo campaigns does not mean we support or are affiliated with them. Support at your own risk.

Santa Clara, 13 March 2018: People who live stream events or love to share selfies on social media can now snap 360° content with eCapture Technologies’ LyfieEye200, which launches today on Indiegogo.

The ultimate smartphone accessory, the LyfieEye200 connects to Android phones to create 360° content, and has VR and AR capabilities to boot.

Sleek design

LyfieEye200 is the world’s smallest and lightest 360° VR/AR camera. In stylish gunmetal with black trim, it weighs less than 15g and is small enough to pop into a pocket.

High Resolution

Hold the smartphone in portrait position to create full HD content with hi-res videos, and 3K images. Use the compatible app, LyfieView200, to control the camera for video, pictures and the live stream function.

Hassle-Free Setup

To capture and share moments just plug the camera into an Android smartphone, install the LyfieView200 app and get ready to go.

The LyfieEye200 is compatible with Android 5.0 smartphones and higher, as well as with Windows 7 or higher.

Social network access is fully integrated, which makes it quick and easy to share content. Share 360° spherical videos on Facebook and YouTube either directly or through the LyfieView200 app.

Multiple Use Applications

Use LyfieEye200 with a host of innovative accessories to capture different angles, and connect easily to a smartphone or PC. Able to facilitate 360° video conferencing and live streaming, the LyfieEye suite of accessories will ensure a hands-free and fuss-free experience for users.

Experience VR/AR

The LyfieEye200 will change the way people think about VR and AR as the tiny powerhouse works with LyfieRoam and LyfieStroll, a duo of innovative apps that are used to create captivating experiences on the fly. Create immersive AR travel maps for tourists or capture vacation memories just using LyfieEye200 and an Android phone.

The LyfieRoam app builds out static experiences based on still images. Walk around an indoor or outdoor space and the app will shoot spherical photos automatically and build VR spaces of historical places. View these spaces using a VR headset for a truly immersive experience.

With LyfieStroll, move around a park, or any space and add AR objects to the area to create fully immersive environments with ease. After the AR content is complete it can be shared with family and friends.

George Wang, CEO of eCapture Technologies, said: “We created the LyfieEye200 so that anyone with a creative spark would be able to make awesome content easily. Whether using it to live stream a gig, or play around with AR – the LyfieEye200 has you covered.”

The Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign kicks off on 13 March with a target of USD 20,000 to put the device into mass production. It has an SRP of USD 159.
