When the engineering team at MADV Technology set out to develop the Madventure 360—the world’s smallest, lightest, and thinnest consumer-grade, 360° 4K video camera—in late 2015, it discovered that an FPGA was the only device capable of meeting all of their project goals. As a result, the Madventure camera relies on a Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA to stitch and synchronize the video streams from two image sensors (one aimed to the front, one aimed to the back) while also performing additional image processing. The tiny, palm-sized camera measures only 3.1x2.6 inches and is only 0.9 inches thick. It sells on Amazon at the moment for $309.99, complete with selfie stick and mini tripod.
