The problem with some home security cameras is that they tend to focus on one area and point in one direction. Sure, some can move, but because of wires/cables or its placement, it doesn’t offer 360-degree surveillance. Now if 360-degree surveillance is something you might be interested in, then perhaps Moon might be a home security camera you could check out.

Launched on Indiegogo, as you can see in the video above it is pretty clear how Moon differs from the competition. It is a spherical camera that floats on its base, defying gravity in the process. What this means is that the camera can spin around fully and can capture everything in its surroundings.

While it won’t be able to capture 360-degree video at once, the fact that it can float and spin about allows it to cover a wide area, so placing it in the middle of the room will let it capture footage from all around it. Other features of the Moon include a built-in infrared blaster that lets you control other devices. There is also a built-in microphone that can detect all kinds of sounds.

If this sounds like something you’d like to furnish your home with, Moon is currently priced at $224 which is 32% off its regular price of $330, so head on over to Indiegogo for the details.
