A 360-degree camera enabled device, provided immersive videos or spherical videos in which video recordings are done from every angle at the same time. It is achieved using an omnidirectional camera or a collection of cameras. During playback, the viewer has control of the viewing direction like a panorama.

Acer Holo360 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 mobile processors. It will be available for $429 ( Rs 27,000) in North America and at a starting price of $418 ( Rs 26,000) in Europe, Middle East and Africa. It will allow users to capture, view, edit and share videos with its 3-inch touchscreen and runs on on Android 7.1 with LTE connectivity option. The company claims that it can capture high-quality photos in 6.9K resolution and videos in 4K resolution. It is supposed to be water-resistance.
On the other hand, Acer Vision360 comes with two ultra-high quality cameras working together to give a 360-degree coverage. It is designed specifically for cars. One can place it on the vehicle's windshield and it can sense the motion via GPS to trigger recording. The recorded data is saved in the internal storage of the device and cloud as well.
It has got one nifty feature as well. If a car is parked and someone bumps into the parked vehicle while it's in parked Vision360 will get activated automatically and will send a notification to the owner via smartphone. Availability and pricing of the device have not revealed so far.
