GoPano Turns iPhone Into 360º Camera

One of the undersold parts of the iPhone is that it can actually take pretty good pictures if you know what you are doing.  Of course there are also accesories that can make the iPhone an even better digital camera and more are coming every day.

The iPhone especially is the one Smartphone that people have spent quite a bit of time trying to turn into a digital camera that you can also dial.  Of course, sometimes they simply want the iPhone to look the part with special protective cases that are built to make the device look like an old time camera.  Other times there are special accesories that are made to help any Smartphone become a better camera, such as the Slow Photography device.  Now there is a device called the GoPano that seeks to do something for iPhone users that no other device can boast.

The GoPano is a device that has been developed by a team well known for putting out fantastic 360 degree cameras.  EyeSee360 is well known in the photography field but until now they had not delved into trying to outfit the iPhone.  The GoPano changes that in such a way that the users of iPhone may not ever look at their video and photography the same way again.  The GoPano micro is a 360 degree video camera that attaches to the iPhone 4 and when being used, will simultanesously record everything that is going on in front, behind and to the side of you at the same time.  This means that when watching what you have recorded, in the free app that comes with it, you will be able to go back and see what was going on behind you while you were busy focusing on what was in front of you.

While you won’t be able to get the GoPano just yet, it appears that this product is going to be one that is quite popular when it is finally made available.  As of yet there isn’t a release date on a widescale margin but when the project needed $20,000 to get off the ground, it ended up taking in over $100,000 by various individual investors.
