Orange launches three connected objects

After the launch of its VR2 headset and its drone in October, Orange launches Live Cam to complete the range of connected objects under the operator’s brand. Orange has long been involved in the distribution of connected objects and support for start-ups. With this collection, Orange offers its customers to discover new entertainment uses with simple to use and accessible products, while benefiting from Orange’s quality of service.

The Live Cam, a 360˚ camera for smartphones

The Live Cam from Orange transforms your smartphone into a high-performance 360° camera. Available on Android, the camera works with a dedicated application for easy use.  With this accessory, the user can take photos and 360˚ videos in HD quality, share the moment instantly on social networks or perform live streaming on Facebook, YouTube or Periscope (Twitter).

Designed in partnership with Giroptic, a pioneering French start-up in 360° imaging, the Live Cam is available in stores and on priced at €149.99 (two year warranty).

The Orange VR2 headset, accessible high-quality virtual reality

After the V1 headset sold 20,000 units across Europe, and won two awards from the industry, Orange launches a second version of its virtual reality headset. More comfortable and lighter than its predecessor, the Orange VR2 headset has a sleeker design and high-quality sound.

Compatible with most smartphones, the Orange VR2 headset is the only one with integrated audio and in addition offers a free application with virtual reality content. By downloading the Orange VR360 and Orange VR Experience applications, this headset offers a new virtual reality experience with 15 pieces of high-quality content consisting of Hollywood films and documentaries.

Developed with the STRAX Group, already a partner for the VR1, the Orange VR2 headset is priced at €49.99 VAT inc. (2 year warranty). Available in shops and on

The Orange Drone, a unique flying experience

The Orange Drone offers a fun flying experience, simple and complete with new features such as automatic take-off and landing,  hovering at different heights, the 360˚ loop in a gesture and a simplified flight path using a finger on the smartphone.

It is pilotable directly from the smartphone via the iOS and Android app or with the handle provided in the pack for more comfortable use. It also allows for the taking of instantaneous photos and videos thanks to its embedded HD camera.

For an even more immersive flying experience, the user can use a virtual reality headset, such as the Orange VR2, to instantly see what the on-board camera on the drone is recording during the flight (control mode FPV).

The Orange Drone was designed by Bigben which is endorsed by Dunkan Bossion, race world champion in 2016 and champion of France in 2017 to give the novice user an immediate racing driver sensation on this first edition drone to Orange customers.

The Orange Drone is available in Orange shops and priced at €79.99, VAT inc. (2 year warranty).
