‘go pano micro’ for iPhone 4, by eyesee360

developed by US-based eyesee360, the ‘go pano micro’ lens attaches to any iPhone 4 to create 360-degree panoramic videos.

the micro lens uses similar technology as the company’s ‘go pano plus’ panoramic optic for digital cameras, which utilizes an equiangular mirror composed of aluminum substrate rather than glass to capture a complete panoramic image. the lens records all angles simultaneously, permitting users during playback to pan to different parts of the video.

the company already has a working prototype of the lens and software for iPhone 4. seeking funding through a kickstarter campaign, eyesee360 plans to ultimately expand the technology for use by other smartphones, mobile devices, and handheld cameras.
