I’m not sure if this spherical video camera is the same one we wrote about in August, but while that one was only available in Korea, this one is available to anyone with a web browser and a credit card thanks to Hammacher Schlemmer. The camera is smaller than a golf ball, but is able to capture up to 6 hours of 320×240 30 fps video and audio onto an included 8GB microSD card. Unfortunately it’s not actually able to record for 6 hours straight on a single charge, but 2 1/2 hours of battery life in a device this small isn’t too shabby. The spherecam connects to your PC via USB for transferring video and image files, or you can watch them directly on your TV thanks to an included video-out cable. The best part though is the included headband allowing you to easily wear the camera during extremely physical activities, or, if you’re like me, as a geeky-looking Borg eye patch.
If you want one just head over to Hammacher Schlemmer where you’ll have to pony up $299.95.
