The Orah 4i is a camera that lets you capture and live stream 360-degree video, which can be watched using a VR headset.

Virtual reality looks set to be the big trend in technology this year. Now, there’s a camera that will let you live stream the world around you, which others can then enjoy in immersive virtual reality.

The Orah 4i streams 360-degree VR content at 4K resolution. It’s equipped with four fisheye lenses, which are capable of capturing 4,096 x 2,048 (4K) video. This is then fed to a stitching box via an ethernet cable, which – as the name implies – stitches it together and sends it to a router, so that it can be streamed.

The stitching box features ports for a microphone, headset, four USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports, and also boasts Bluetooth, LAN, and Wi-fi capabilities. It also contains a hefty 120GB of storage.

The Orah 4i can be pre-ordered for $1,800, though the price will increase from April 30th over time until it hits $3,600.
