Hi All,

The ION360 U 360º photo-video-live stream (Facebook, YouTube) 4K camera - announced 22 May 2017 - begins shipping the end of July/early August 2017, according to their Help Desk.

The ION360 U is a battery-charging case that clips on your phone (1,300mAh battery).

The ION360 U ($349 - $249 Pre-Order until 31 July 2017) is compatible with:

✓ iPhone 7
✓ iPhone 7 Plus
✓ Galaxy S8
✓ Galaxy S8+

In a crowded field of 60+ 360º 1-click camera solutions, what I like best - based on the device's specs ...

- attached to your phone so it works just like you would expect with camera roll, sharing
- streaming 4K Video
- instantly go live (Facebook, YouTube)
- 360º photos: 7.2MP

"With the ION360 U, consumers don’t have to change the way the phone is used or download content . The device transforms a phone into a 360-degree camera with a seamless integration of hardware and software," says the ION360 U interactive product announcement website.

While the specs seem like the ION360 U would meet the Google Street View certification, there is no mention of Street View certified on the ION360 U website (which I consider a "must" requirement.

That said, I could imagine that this 360º camera - packaged as a battery case for smartphones - will be a huge success in the share-every-moment-teen market, based on its 2017 Billboard Music Awards announcement 21 May 2017.

What do you think?

In this video, I unbox the ION360 U camera - and give you a sneak preview.

Celebrated my birthday at Sal's Neighborhood Pizzeria in St. Simons Island on the Georgia Coast with family during our annual family reunion.

I was just saying how cool it would be for a 360 video that you can turn around and see what everyone else is doing. The picture and the sound was better than I imagined. Most I have seen was distorted.
