Hobbyists and photography connoisseurs would certainly want their hands on this. It’s a lens attachment that can be placed to your iPhone that gives you the ability to shoot panoramic footages.
Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Kogeto Jeff Glasse said, “It captures 360-degree video and then lets you share that video online. You’re capturing in the room – 360 degrees.”
Called the “Dot” it is a $79 add-on to your iPhone and was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas. Glasse also added that you can have the ability to upload it to Facebook, Twitter or wherever you want to share it.
The Dot attaches to the iPhone’s camera lens and it automatically turns into a 360-degree panoramic image.
The company started distributing the device for the iPhone 4 and the 4S last October. It will be released to the European market by February and is available in Apple Stores in US in two weeks.
The Dot for the Android Samsung Galaxy Nexus is going to be released at the first half of this year.
“We’re bringing this to the consumer market so we can be the plumbing for panoramic video. I believe wholeheartedly in panoramic video. I believe it’s transformative,” said Glasse.
