360 Degree Panoramic Video For The iPhone 4 – Video

An experimental prototype by the makers of the GoPano+ lens for digital cameras, the GoPano micro promises an impressive 360 degrees of video recording for the iPhone 4. –– Video in the article

The lens works off of the same principle as it’s older GoPano+ counterpart, using a lens that utilizes equiangular mirrors made of aluminum substrate in order to capture a complete panoramic image. Because the lens allows simultaneous recording on all angles at all times, the phone screen can be used to swipe left and right to pan around to view all the possible angles in view of the iPhone, regardless of whether what you’re viewing is a live recording or of a playback of a previous video shot with the lens. And though both the lens and it’s software for the iPhone 4 is only in prototype development right now, the guys at eyesee360 are pushing for it’s release for widespread availability.

First the Kinect camera, hacked for use as a freehand interface with computer systems, and now this; a unique lens that enables you to view past and present recordings to see that stalker following behind you whom you didn’t notice before. As technology catches up to fantasy, the world on Minority Report seems less and less of a sci-fi movie flick and more like the reality we’ll be facing tomorrow, just a hands stretch away.
