Bubl Technology Inc., is a Toronto technology start-up with the goal to make 360-degree technology available to everyone. The handheld device (about the size of a baseball) captures full panoramic photos and videos, allows users to experience and share recorded content as well as streams live video.
Bubl Technology was founded in 2011 by Sean Ramsay, immersive technology enthusiast and digital strategist. Google StreetView made many people aware of the possibilities in capturing spherical imagery, but they and others have yet to make the technology affordable, truly portable of available for market consumption. Their goal was to change that by providing a portable unit at a retail price point.

Bubl Technology was a participant in the third cohort of ideaBOOST with their project Bublcam, which captures life in a bubl. It is a market ready spherical camera that captures 100 per cent of the spherical range through panoramic photos and videos. The Bubl brand has been created to both deliver the highest quality products and services dedicated to 360-degree technology advancement, as well as captivate and entertain a public continuously seeking new content. What is also incredible is all of the opportunities in commercial applications like media broadcasters, industrial and utility companies, retail channels, hotel and travel and real estate that the Bublcam provides a new advantage to. The innovative tetrahedral design allows the four 190-degree lenses to overlap, capturing everything inside what is dubbed a digital bubl. It is even small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
