Selfies have become a part of our everyday existence, but they only give you part of the picture. That’s where the Allie Go comes in. This new 360-degree camera lets you to take “all-ies,” or images that give you a complete view of everything in a scene.
Miami-based Allie Camera, a division of IC Real Time, is unveiling its Allie Go camera (spelled ALLie by the company) so users can see it all. To use the device, you attach a lightweight battery base to the camera and then enable it to take 360 videos and livestream to YouTube.
Allie Go has two hours of recording time, and it comes with a tripod mount for hands-free recording and livestreaming. It can capture 4K video, and it has a removable battery pack. The Allie Go costs $500, and the battery pack sells for $60.
“We are listening to our Allie community and their desire to have even more flexibility with how they take quality 360 video and share it with family and friends,” said Dmitry Kozko, president of Allie, in a statement. “We are excited to offer our users richer, more valuable 360-degree experiences anywhere.”
The camera pairs with the Allie app, and it allows users to swipe, pan, or zoom on their smartphone or tablet with complete control over what they view. It even gives them the option to view in virtual reality (VR) mode for an even more immersive experience.
The 360-degree views can be used for security, and the device can bring moments like parties to life in a way that no other camera can. The Allie Go is available for preorder and ships to customers in mid-October. The division has 50 employees. The parent company, IC Real Time, has installed security cameras at more than 100,000 sites around the world.
