LG 360 CAM to retail at $199, say Sprint, B&H

12

LG's handheld 360-degree camera — the aptly named LG 360 CAM — will retail for $199, according to a preorder listing on B&H Photo, as well as in a leak from Sprint. The 360 CAM is part of the "friends" ecosystem that comes alongside the LG G5, which will be available starting April 1.

The camera is LG's answer to the personal 360-degree video game, which also will see an entry from Samsung this summer, in addition to the non-mobile 360-degree shooters we've seen from other companies.

Hands-on with SolarTab, a giant solar panel for your gear

25

Charging with solar energy is an appealing concept for many, but there are still plenty of obstacles.

For some people, a battery backup is a part of everyday life. Our phones are growing more capable every day. But when you've got a hour commute home and want to watch a movie or play games the whole ride home at the end of the day, the last thing you want to see is a low-battery warning. Every once in a while you might wonder if it'd be possible to run these phones entirely on self-generated power. Hand-crank generators and solar panels connected to massive battery packs don't sound like the most practical thing on the planet, but if it's a reliable solution it'd be cool to think about your phone as living "off the grid."

Solartab is the latest in a line of products from companies that want to give you the ability to charge your phone with the sun whenever you want. To help you deal with the size of the solar panel, the company has disguised it to look like a tablet.
