Watch out, GoPro, there's a new camera in the works that provides a 360-degree view, producing twilight-zone footage whether it's high in the sky attached to a drone or taking a ride down the hall on a rolling office chair.

With a tetrahedral design, it's a sort of disco-ball camera whose 4,190 lenses overlap to capture everything around it combining panoramic shots and giving new meaning to the cliche "the big picture."

Shots are blended by means of heat mapping, but once blended, individual shots can be separated from the spherical picture for viewing in standard format.

Developers say on Bubl's webpage that while other cameras claim to capture 360 degree views, they all have at least one blind spot except for Bubl.

What's more, the corresponding app will allow for viewing by means of mobile communications devices, literally putting life in a digital bubble.

While thrilling footage of nearly any kind of activity is clearly possible, other potential uses for Bublcam lean towards viewing football matches, for example, from a new perspective: The center of things.

It could also have practical applications for training purposes that require a 360 view of the body in motion.

Bublcam comes in black, white or silver with a mini tripod, pouch and lens cloth and can currently be preordered for US$579 with delivery expected in the fall.
