About this project
Finally the 360° camera for everyone, everywhere. With two lenses pointed in opposite directions, both with 200 degree viewing angles, capture everything up down and all around. No need to worry where to point the frame, DOKICAM will capture the entire scene!
Easy to use and affordable, DOKICAM is truly the first 360° camera for everyone. With simplified shooting and editing, anyone can capture stunning 360° images and video. Portable and durable, take DOKICAM anywhere. Dirt and water resistant while being as small as a baseball, DOKICAM is the perfect 360° cam whether for travel or extreme sports.
The $50,000 stretch goal has been unlocked! Plastic casings can lead to distortion. Therefore, we are currently working with a lens specialist to develop a waterproof lens casing that matches DOKICAM's fisheye lens.
SEE BELOW (Rewards Section) for step-by-step instructions on how to change your pledge to add on a Water-proof case!
DOKICAM offers five unique viewing modes: Planet mode, VR mode, Fish eye mode, Hemisphere mode & 360° mode. With Virtual Reality and 360° as the next frontier for video content in the near future, DOKICAM offers astounding video shooting resolution to help you create groundbreaking new content.
DOKICAM captures MORE! With a true 360° field of view (FOV), capture everything that is happening in front, besides, behind above and below you. Compared to standard action cams, DOKICAM captures a much wider frame to allow you to capture all of the action.
As a 60 mm sphere, DOKICAM is no bigger than a baseball and only weighs 150 grams making it extremely portable. With an IP54 rating, DOKICAM is both durable against dust and water resistant making it suitable for outdoor use and fast-paced activity.
Various attachment methods make DOKICAM adaptable for a diverse array of circumstances, including extreme sports, while maintaining shot stability. Whether sky diving or bumping shoulders at a festival take DOKICAM with you to capture the once in a life-time experience.
Shoot, Edit & Go! With DOKICAM , shooting 360° photos and video is that simple. Take a photo or start recording with the touch of a button and edit directly on your phone. No complicated set-up required!
Shooting in 360° has never been simpler. With dual access controls, shoot or record with the press of the shutter button, or use the DOKICAM app to control the camera remotely. When shooting remotely with the DOKICAM app, you can view live previews for both photos and video.
Editing with DOKICAM can be performed right on your smart phone using the companion application. Switch between DOKICAM's five different modes: Planet mode, VR mode, Fish eye mode Hemisphere & 360° mode. Change your content right on the app, save it and share it with your friends on social media.
With DOKICAM you can edit your content directly on the app or through the PC editing tool provided. The DOKICAM app also allows you to change camera settings to adjust for lighting situations. Whether shooting images or video, see a live preview of your shot right on the DOKICAM app.
With editing available directly on the DOKICAM app, upload your 360° content on the go. Download your content right onto your phone and share on Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, Twitter or SnapChat. No computer editing required. Both Facebook and Youtube have confirmed 360° content support on Facebook 360° & Youtube 360°. DOKICAM also enables live streaming to show off your world view in real-time.
Having gone through multiple prototype phases, DOKICAM was finally realized as a tiny sphere to maximize 360° FOV and portability. With an HDMI port for hi-quality live streaming and expandable storage up to 128 GB, DOKICAM is the 360° cam designed to shoot on-the-go like an action cam.

Many of the major players (Google, Facebook, Samsung, Sony etc.) in the IT sector have set their sights on the VR market. However, as of yet, personal 360° cameras that are able to shoot VR content are only just now beginning to enter the market and thus far have had major limitations. When shooting VR videos, many 360° cameras require post-stitching and editing of the content which requires near professional editing skills. In addition, many 360° cameras that have hit the market have proven to be prohibitively expensive for the average consumer. Seeing these limitations, our team sought out to develop the most accessible 360° camera, DOKICAM, which will enable anyone and everyone to engage in the new VR frontier.
As a Startup Company in the camera business, we face the daunting challenge of competing with major international corporations. With Kickstarter, we hope to be able to reach early adopters efficiently and directly while also hopefully boosting our brand. On a platform like Kickstarter, we will not be pushed out of the competition for reasons such as ad campaigns or marketing budgets, and we can focus on just the quality of our product. Also, through Kickstarter, we will focus on gauging interest in our product in order to prepare for the mass production stage of the first batch of DOKICAMs.
DOKICAM is made up of a team of image algorithm specialists and optical engineers averaging 10-15 years of experience in the camera divisions of multinational corporations such as Intel, Samsung & Honeywell. Drawing from this experience, DOKICAM was established in January 2015 to focus on the cutting edge of the camera consumer market: 360° action cameras, innovative image technology and virtual reality. DOKICAM is our first product offering in all three of these next-generation fields!
Risks and challenges
We have seen that some projects on Kickstarter have failed to keep their promise to their backers and want to assure you that we have made diligent preparations to prevent this from happening. We believe that our experience in multinational companies has given us insight into some of the problems that can arise during the mass-production phase. We have taken preparation for production of large quantities of DOKICAM and are in the process of meeting the right manufacturing processes. We will of course alert our backers immediately should any unforeseen problems arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
