The world’s first neckband-type 360° camera, FITT 360 LIVES has been selected as an Honoree at the CES 2020 for three consecutive years. FITT 360 is awarded for two categories: the Smart Cities and the Virtual & Augmented Reality. The provider of this neckwearable device, Linkflow, has been a member of Born2Global Centre during the cited period.

 

FITT360 LIVES is specifically a wearable communication device, beyond a mere camera, that people can make 360° video calls with. Designed in the sense of human engineering, Linkflow completed the distinguished concept of the product with hands-free POV(Point of View) 360° filming, real-time communication and live streaming features.

 

Without using hands, FITT360 can easily preserve around view and broadcast in real time. In this regard, the device encompasses a variety of use cases from social media live streaming to emergency situations. By wearing a FITT 360 LIVES, in any emergency circumstances, seamless aid can be carried out communicating with other supporting paramedics on the phone.

 

From the beginning of this year, Linkflow has collaborated with a Korean mobile carrier giant, KT, and unveiled FITT360. KT developed an application to perform seamless transmission with the hands-free neckworn device.

 

FITT360 has also received a 2017 Good Design Gold-Minister Award and Red Dot Product Design Award followed by the IDEA 2018 Bronze award.
