Up looking camera would break the 360 3D. The existing 8 cameras have 180 vertical coverage, so you have 3D everywhere.

correct me if im wrong, but there were lense attachments for dslrs a while back that was a sphere that took a 360 photo and did a fairly good job, what ever happened to that? i have to imagine at least on a photo basis it would come out better quality than this.

When using VR glasses, simple 360 does't provide a natural experience. You gotta get stereo (3D) 360 to have it really immersive. This is what this camera does.

Just by looking at the picture of the device, it obviously doesn't have a 180 degree vertical FoV. I think they probably meant 90 degrees. That would be consistent with using 4 pairs of cameras to get 360 degree coverage, as well.

By 180 degrees, perhaps they were double-counting the 90 degrees to each side. So, looking at a horizontal cross-section, it would be able to see a total of 180 degrees out of 360 (with 90 degree blind spots above and below).

no camera on the top or bottom. . Its not spherical video, more like panaramic shots.
