Nissan introduces 360-degree 4K JukeCam option
Nissan has developed a 360-degree 4K dashcam that can be removed and used for capturing action videos outside of the vehicle too.
Nissan Juke owners will soon be able to get their hands on a 360-degree dash cam that is capable of recording 4K video and can be removed from the vehicle to double up as an action camera too.
The creatively named JukeCam, Nissan says, could even reward drivers with cheaper insurance premiums, as the video evidence it records will help settle claims and identify who is in the wrong in the event of an accident.
Developed in conjunction with 360fly – a manufacturer of 360º cameras – the JukeCam is the world’s first integrated multipurpose 360º dashcam.
Adrenaline junkies can remove the JukeCam from its secure dashboard mounting and use it to capture “thrill-seeking activities,” according to Nissan – something which the Japanese car giant proved with the help of stuntman Dalton Smith, who set a new Guinness World Record in the process.
In the video, Smith hops over three Nissan Jukes in a row with just one bounce in between each car while wearing a helmet-mounted JukeCam.
It’s not the first time Nissan has worked with 360-degree cameras. The car manufacturer’s Around View Monitor takes footage from multiple exterior cameras and stitches them together to create a view of the nearby area surrounding a vehicle. It’s great for helping to navigate tricky spaces, like tight parking garages and parallel parking spots.
Nissan hasn’t announced a price for the JukeCam yet and it is currently on set for the European market, but that could change going forward.
