About this project
Three products, one goal: improve the creation and sharing of 360 panoramas and virtual reality content.
We designed the Orbit 360 to work with our DSCVR smartphone app. DSCVR takes spherical panoramas in 3D. The Orbit 360 ensures perfect stitching every time.
Orbit 360 is just the tip of the iceberg; we’re also releasing two unique viewers: the Flip 360 and Pocket 360. Both viewers are convenient to use, and allow you to instantly view and share all the cool 360 content you create.
MEET THE FAMILY
The Orbit 360 is a Bluetooth-controlled base that let's you take perfect spherical panoramas on your smartphone.
WHAT MAKES THE ORBIT 360 SO AWESOME?
ORBIT 360: DESIGNED FOR DSCVR
DSCVR pictospheres aren't just wide; they're 360 degrees

The Flip 360 is a smartphone case with a built-in VR headset. You don’t have to bring a separate viewer, because now your phone case is your viewer!
FEATURES THAT'LL MAKE YOU FLIP
The Pocket 360 is an even more compact viewer. It has a folding front panel and carry case. Your big adventures are now pocket-sized.
We designed the headset to be there when you need it, but unobtrusive when you don’t.
POCKET 360: DEETS AND SPECS

Our team has the burning desire to make virtual reality accessible to a wider range of people - not just gamers or techies. Production of our first cardboard headsets started just days after Google unveiled Cardboard at Google I/O in 2014. Within a week, we had our first cardboard kits up for sale.
Today, we're one of the top makers of Google-certified Cardboard kits. But we're not stopping with just viewers. We want to empower people to put themselves in the picture by creating their own VR content. And that's where Orbit 360 comes in.
This is our third Kickstarter campaign, and with your support we can make it as successful as our last two Kickstarters.
Risks and challenges
Our mission is to make virtual reality more accessible and empower people to become a part of VR. This is why we spent a considerable amount of time and resources creating a working prototype. It's always risky devoting this much attention to a project without guaranteed funding, but we want you guys to get excited over a real, working product.
As with our previous Kickstarter campaign, we maintain a network of reliable suppliers that helps lessen the risk of taking the project to the manufacturing process.
The mission doesn't end once the product is done - safe, reliable shipping is also a primary concern. With our experience dealing with international markets, and our strategic presence in the ports of Hong Kong, and Shenzhen, we're ready to step up to the challenge of shipping these products to an international market.
We also need your support to overcome these challenges. With your pledge, we will be able to take the product through the manufacturing and shipping stages. Together, we can make the Orbit 360, Flip 360, and Pocket 360 a reality!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Most panoramic apps would benefit from a stable, rotating base. However, the rotation speed, angles, and other features of the Orbit 360 was specifically designed for our DSCVR app. We recommend using the Orbit 360 with the DSCVR.
