About this project
The GoPano micro is a lens for the iPhone 4 to make 360º panoramic videos! Just snap the lens to your iPhone 4 and press record to make cool interactive 360º videos. Use it to record all the action of your favorite sport, record your next meeting in 360º or just as a fun toy for the summer.
The GoPano micro will record everything around you simultaneously. You can go back to the recorded video and choose to view any perspective, any angle at any point in time. The GoPano app allows you to upload your 360º video onto our web platform and share 360º videos with your friends. You can watch 360º videos uploaded by others in the app or on the web site. (the GoPano lens records everything simultaneously and not just the scene on the screen, you can pan & zoom in/out anywhere in your recorded video).
Imagine watching a football game broadcast and being able to follow your favorite player all the time. Imagine a bride being able to "turn around" in her wedding video and see her parents' faces the moment the officiant says, "I now pronounce you husband and wife"!
GoPano's technology brings a new angle to making videos. By freeing the video from the single perspective of a conventional camera, you can interact with the video in a way never before possible. We strongly believe that 360º video will become as important in broadcasting as sound was to silent movies or color television was to black & white.
While we've offered 360º video products for years to professionals, GoPano micro is our first step in making panoramic video technology accessible to the masses.
With Your Help.
We want your help to make GoPano micro a reality. We have a working prototype and the essential software ready. A web platform to host 360º interactive movies is on its way. We are requesting your support to make this product a commercial reality. Support us on Kickstarter, tell your friends and spread this idea. And yes, you don't have to stick to the tiers, please feel free to contribute any amount.
We are very thrilled with this new project. We hope with your support we can make this technology- The technology of the future!
* Today, the GoPano micro optic is compatible with the iPhone 4 only. With the success of this project, we will broaden this technology to include more smart phones, mobile devices and cameras.
Sorry, no. The cameras in the other iPhones are different than the iPhone 4 and do not yield satisfactory results. The initial optic will be compatible with any model of the iPhone 4.
