May 28, 2014 17:17 IST

Brazuca balls to be used in FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil will have six in-built HD cameras. The cameras will help in capturing 360 degree view of the on-field action. The 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil will be held from 12 June to 13 July 2014.

Bracuza means Brazilian way of life and the name was chosen for the ball by over 1 million football fans in September 2012.

Bracuza ball to be used during the tournament carries shades of blue, orange and green. It also carries stars on it that reflects the vibrancy and flair associated with the game in Brazil. The maker of the ball has used technology that involves structural innovation with unique symmetry of six identical panels alongside a different surface structure to provide improved grip, aerodynamics, touch and stability on the pitch.

The ball has been designed by six propeller shaped polyurethane panels which are thermally bonded together and carries a different geometry. The ball weighs 437 grams and will retain its shape, size and weight even in rain due to its water absorption rate of 0.2 percent.

Brazuca is the 12th ball created by Adidas but its last World Cup creation, Jabulani, which was used in the 2010 competition in South Africa.
