Madventure 360 is a redesigned version of the Xiaomi Mijia Mi Sphere. Until now, what I’ve been told is that the hardware and features are the same as those for the Xiaomi Mijia Mi Sphere. But it appears that it will have live streaming, a feature that is not yet available on the Mi Sphere.
MadV, the team that designed the Xiaomi Mijia Mi Sphere, launched the Madventure 360 camera, which was intended to be offered in markets where the Mi Sphere was not yet being sold. It contrast to the Mi Sphere’s austere black finish, the Madventure has a distinctive bright orange color and a name that is easier to remember for western buyers.
For existing and prospective buyers of the Mi Sphere, there has been some confusion over whether the Madventure is an improved version of the Mi Sphere. Until now, what I’ve been told is that the Madventure has the same hardware, but it may have different software from the Mi Sphere.
It appears that Madventure will have live streaming, a feature that is not yet available on the Mi Sphere. This was disclosed on Veer’s blog. Veer also said that the Madventure would be available on Amazon in January.
It is not yet clear whether live streaming will also eventually be added to the Mi Sphere. Currently, Madventure is available for preorder from Gearbest for around $435, around $200 more than cost of a Mi Sphere. Although Madventure does include additional accessories, those accessories alone would not account for the price difference. This implies to me that Madventure will indeed have additional features, and live streaming could be one of the exclusive features. What do you think? If live streaming were exclusively for Madventure, would that make you prefer Madventure or Mi Sphere?
