GoPano micro promises 360º video from iPhone 4

EyeSee360, makers of the GoPano Plus 360-degree panoramic optic for digital cameras and camcorders, is now seeking funding to manufacture the GoPano micro, a new lens for the iPhone 4. According to the company, the GoPano micro will use a unique optic + software combination to allow iPhone 4 users to record 360-degree video; a working prototype and essential software is said to be completed, with a web platform to host 360-degree interactive movies in the works. The company has already received nearly $95,000 of funding via Kickstarter—its goal was $20,000—so it appears the product will indeed be produced, however, interested readers can still “pre-order” the GoPano micro with a pledge of $50, $30 off the expected retail price of $80.

Oh, that’s cool! Too bad it can’t record the full 360 at once though. Then again, there isn’t a player that would be wide enough to play the full 360 video.

Actually, it does record the whole 360 at once. It says that on their website. I think I want to get in on this too!
