The iPhone 4′s digital camera is actually a magical. Crisp and clear along with remarkable optics and image handling features, it’s placing suppliers of snapshot-style cams out of business. The fact is, social photo-sharing website Flickr indicates the apple iphone 4 to be the most used camera in use on its website.
Despite all its capability, however, the iPhone 4 is only able to catch a scant 60 degree’s worth of photos in front of it. Measuring only 1/6th of the total motion around you! Sure, you got an excellent shot of Molly blowing out her candles, but you missed Uncle Billy inadvertently setting his hair piece on fire because he was standing behind you.
So what the fine folks at GoPano did was fit an iPhone with particular mirrors and lenses that captures everything from every angle at the same time. The complete 360 degrees of action is saved in a ring, and progressive application that does not only unwraps the action to fit your iPhone monitor, but also takes advantage of your iPhone’s accelerometer, as well as lets you “navigate” through the scene by rotating your field-of view all around. It’s definitely an immersive experience.
