About

Risks and challenges

Initially we conceptualised our modular camera in 2015

Rather than launching immediately we spent two plus years building the right team of ten engineers and making sure we did it right.

Hundreds of hours were spent building prototypes, writing C, refining stitching algorithms and validating technology stack.

We're already looking ahead to production lines and tooling as this is something that can be very expensive/risky. For this reason we've set a funding goal that will cover any unforeseen production expenses, and have limited the quantity of cameras so that we can assemble each camera by hand if need be.

In terms of stitching and live streaming, we're on our third prototype and have gone through several design iterations. In 2015 we started with a Raspberry Pi and four cameras, before moving to a FPGA in 2016 and finally deciding on a GPU in 2017.

Like any technology project on Kickstarter - we have more work to do, that's why we're here and looking for funding! Rather than promising immediate shipping dates, we've set a timeline that is based on the current capacity of the team so that we can deliver a quality product, weather any surprises and most importantly... deliver on time.
