Nissan has unveiled what it's calling the JukeCam, the world's first integrated multipurpose 360º dashcam that can transform into an action camera.
The camera slots into two bespoke mounts – one is integrated into the dashboard of a Nissan Juke crossover, while another can be attached to a helmet.
This means you can use the camera as a dashboard camera (and help reduce insurance premiums) one minute, and then capture first-person footage the next – as you hurtle down a mountain trail if all SUV adverts are to be believed.
Nissan JukeCam is a technology concept that’s been developed in conjunction with 360fly, a manufacturer of 360º cameras.
The camera is capable of recording footage in 4K, and comes with an internal 64GB memory – the fully integrated JukeCam has an ‘always-on’ recording capacity of three hours when used as a dashcam, allowing journeys to be recorded should the footage be required for an insurance claim.
When the JukeCam is detached from the dashboard-mounted base to be used as an action camera the battery will last up to two hours, while it has some pretty reasonable 'tough' credentials as well – it's waterproof down to 10m, as well as being dust-proof and shock-proof.
As well as this, the Nissan Juke is available with the company's Intelligent Around View Monitor, a clever parking camera system that creates an all-around view to help drivers detect obstacles they might otherwise miss while parking.
