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.
