Every tech gadget you can dream up will eventually show up at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. This year's event, which attracts about 150,000 people who want to try out the next hot gadget, is introducing the world to connected cars, next-generation fitness trackers and a whole lot more.

One of those other things is 360-degree action cameras that are designed for virtual-reality formats. In other words, you're going to start seeing a lot more 360-degree videos on Facebook and YouTube from perspective of bikers flying down a mountain, surfers riding giant waves, and race car drivers crashing into walls.

Just today, two of the best-known companies in photography have introduced 360-degree view, 4K action cams. 4K videos have about four times the pixel resolution of high-definition videos.

Kodak's PixPro SP360 4K camera is a spherical 4K camera with a 360-degree lens, and a 235-degree field of vision. It's perfect to create virtual-reality videos, and it's compatible with YouTube 360 and Facebook 360. The camera can be attached to drones or helmets, to capture the action no matter where you are.
