eCapture Technologies has launched a new version of the LyfieEye mobile camera on crowdfunding website Indiegogo. Called LyfieEye200, this model is being dubbed "the world's smallest 360° VR/AR camera," and offers a bunch of neat AR/VR features for Android users who want to get more mileage out of their smartphone photography adventures.

The LyfieEye200 was designed for Android smartphones, and adds 1440p support in addition to the original model's 1080p resolution. The removable camera plugs directly into a smartphone's USB-C port, where a pair of greater-than-180° FOV fisheye lenses work together to enable both 360° image/video capture and 360° livestreaming.

To make the magic happen, the camera works in conjunction with the LyfieView200 Android companion app on devices running Android 5.0 or newer. And if you want even more creative possibilities, eCapture offers both the LyfieStroll and LyfieRoam apps for creating simple VR and AR content, respectively. Finally, the camera is also compatible with PCs running Windows 7 or higher, but it does not support iOS.

The LyfieEye200 is available now on Indiegogo, where backers can 'reserve' theirs by pledging at least $90 USD. Shipments to backers are expected to start in June, assuming the campaign reaches full funding and doesn't pull a KitSentry.

It has also been reported to work on certain Snapdragon 4XX or 6XX devices such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, though this requires the devices to have the Camera2 API enabled. Since the initial, rather buggy release, the Google Camera port has received updates to fix major bugs, bring more Xiaomi devices on board, and has also introduced Zero Shutter Lag for automatic HDR+ mode.
