What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

How it Works & Design Elements

Vyu360 camera and software was originally developed and tested on Arduino prototyping board.

We worked with several optics until we decided to work on a final assembly featuring two 220 degree lenses with a focal distance of 2.0 mm.

The Camera has been designed to be compact and portable. We have adopted from the beginning a minimal design approach and went through several designs before getting it right. 

Our design allows for two cameras to capture seamlessly front and rear field of view simultaneously without any obstruction.

Our proprietary software merges the two frames from cameras resulting in one compiled true 360 by 360 media output.

 One of the biggest challenges has been packing two large 1800mA batteries.  This feature enables the camera to have  extended power duration lasting up to 1 hour 30 minutes of recording time.

 What is Under the Hood

 The 4K Pro Cam features long lasting batteries and a powerful cortex A7 processor unleashing 4K recording at 30 fps. Note that the camera comes with 32GB of Memory included. Here are the full specs:

Together, Alexis and Maurizio, have join forces in 2016 to bring you Vyu360. A venture that aims to develop hardware and software technologies to make VR recording accessible to the masses.

Risks and challenges

We've been working on Vyu360 for over 1 year and had initially intended to launch in November 2016 with a camera upgrade accessory. We have decided to hold back until we can ensure the prototype works perfectly.
In the meanwhile, we have decided to proceed with a high-end WiFi camera alternative that can help us propel into the future. We have opened the plastic injection molds last month and we are confident that we can deliver this amazing camera before the end of the Year.

With the support of our manufacturing and distribution partners, we are well prepared for the challenges ahead. We promise to be transparent and to keep our backers updated and informed about any issues that may come up and our solutions to such.

Our scope is to deliver the best possible Vyu360 4K camera into your hands ASAP. So please go back to the top of the page and support us with a pledge.
