Consumer 360-degree video cameras are becoming more popular as VR systems gain popularity, but ORBI Prime is a recorder that's working even harder to bring 360-degree video recording into the mainstream. The eyewear hides a 360-degree camera in plain sight, working the technology directly into the stylish frames.

Other 360 video cameras are much like regular cameras in that they require some sort of peripheral mount, and even small action cameras for recording 360-degree video stick out conspicuously. ORBI Prime fits just like a pair of sports sunglasses, with an optional elastic strap around the back, allowing people to record their activities without any extra equipment.

The glasses record in 4K resolution, thanks to four 1080p cameras placed throughout the frame. ORBI Prime is also Wi-Fi enabled, letting users upload footage directly from the glasses without any cables.
