The GoPano micro is a lens for the iPhone 4 to make 360º panoramic videos! Snap the lens to your iPhone & record complete 360º action.
2,685 backers pledged $169,209 to help bring this project to life.

Thank you Kickstarter!

After a torrent of interest, months of hard work and perseverance we are very pleased to have delivered GoPano micro to all of our backers and thousands more since. You can pick up your own GoPano micro at store.gopano.com, or from one of our growing list of resellers, including Amazon.com, Adorama, B&H Photo, BiteMyApple.coThinkGeek and many more to come.

GoPano micro is not just an optical device, but also an iPhone app and a hosting web site. In the past few months, we've created a mass-produced panoramic optic device, with a brand new mirror design that's never existed before. We've developed software to unwarp, present and record video from this device in real time, on a computer that fits in your pocket. We've made the first ever video hosting site specifically geared towards panoramic video, and we're providing it for free to all of our users. All three are tied together so you can create, publish, and explore panoramic video content from around the world in the palm of your hand. We've put this all together in about 6 months, with an engineering team that's small enough to share a table at lunch, while continuing to support our existing products. 

It's been our vision for more than a decade to make panoramic video as commonplace as traditional video. There are many individuals and companies around the world that share this vision, and have made panoramic video devices ranging from a few hundred dollars to a few hundred thousand. Today, thousands of people are creating panoramic video with GoPano micro. Putting this technology into the hands of so many, we're closer to our vision now than ever before.

I am extremely proud of my team and all we have accomplished. We've made a great product right here in the USA, grown our company, and created new jobs to help build them. We've learned a great deal in the process, and are already hard at work applying those lessons in our ongoing product development. From all of us on the team, we thank our supporters on Kickstarter for helping to make it happen.

We have an excellent support team, and now we have a system in place to help assist you more efficiently than ever. If you ever have any issues or questions with your GoPano, please contact our team or use our web site below:

      Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the lens clean? Mine is seriously dirty and not being able to get anywhere near the lens nor the plastic covering inside is becoming a major problem. The air solution sounds cute for dust but seriously impractical for anyone living in a country with very high humidity.

      I reckon the optic would have been better served with a closed design so you only clean the outside.

      Not really a support question so hopefully someone is at least still reading comments here. Back on August 26 it was stated that after the main production run, the limited edition batch would be made. Is this still planned or is that no longer happening?

    3. Creator Sam Shafie on November 14, 2011

      Yup, waiting for mine too.

      I´m still waiting

      Congrats, Michael. I got mine and I liked it a lot. You've really acomplished something very nice. Criticism is an easy way to seem intelligent.

      Yeah, got mine. Not impressed at all.
