Should you ever need to shoot panoramic clips using your iPhone 4, then consider the “Kogeto Dot,” a Kickstarter project by Jeff Glasse aimed at bringing 360-degree video recording to the masses. It’s cool, stylish and highly portable, according to the above promo video.
The Kogeto’s offering is quite a bit more pocketable than other crowd-funded solutions. The Kogeto Dot snaps onto an iPhone 4 in your choice of pastel colors, and catches 360-degree video when placed face down. It’s got an accompanying iOS app that’ll un-distort the video for sharing, or even broadcast it on the net in real time.
Remarkably, the Kogeto Dot also lets you stream panoramic video in real-time via your handset. If you’re interested to take the plunge, prepare to fork out $98. That sum buys you a Dot, a signed thank-you letter from developers and a mention on their website. They raised nearly ten grands at press time and the goal is to hit the $25,000 mark by July 3.
