About this project

360° Video is an entirely new medium for today’s display technology.  360° Video surrounds the user in content.  It is immersive, transporting, and exploratory. It is not virtual reality. It is real life, recorded completely.


At 360Heros, we’ve been hooked on 360° Video for years, but it has been too difficult, too expensive, and out of reach for too long.Our mission is to empower a new generation of 360° content creators, and we can’t wait to see where you’ll take us.

Using an array of GoPro cameras, mounted to the 360Heros patent pending 360 Plug-n-Play Holders, you’ll join us in pioneering this revolutionary, new medium of 360° Video, and you’ll be able snap stunning 360° panoramas in one click of the WiFi remote.

360Heros - 360 Scuba Edition
360Heros - 360 Scuba Edition

This is all possible because of a convergence of camera utility, stitching software, and display technologies.Our 360 Plug-n-Player Holders provide the essential framework that ties it all together. They are 3D printed from aircraft-grade nylon and designed for ease of use in the field.

Kickstarter funding Goals

The funded Kickstarter project will support both the GoPro Hero2 and Hero3 Cameras.

Currently the 360H6 model supports both the Hero2 and Hero3 Camera models using the GoPro Housings.This is great for all weather conditions.This is also one of several parts used if you want to shoot 360 video or photos underwater.  As the user you will need to supply the camera, the housing and the flat adhesive mount in order to make this work.  For better clarity and less parallax issues in stitching we also have models specifically designed to hold the Hero2 and Hero3 Cameras.

Our goal is to help you become your own 360hero and support your 360 production efforts.  We will be supply a whole series of online training seminars that will support these new mediums.Tips on how to shoot 360 video and one click 360 photos, how to use the different 360 video and photo stitchers, along with presenting your material via the web and/or mobile devices.

Our deliverable will be:

  • 360H6 – 360 Holder used to hold either the GoPro Hero2 or Hero3 camera housings.
  • H2Pro6, H2Pro6N – 360 Holders used to hold the GoPro Hero2 Cameras
  • H3Pro6, H3Pro6N, H3Pro7 – 360 Holders used to hold the GoPro Hero3 Cameras
  • 360H6 Scuba - 360 Underwater Holders for GoPro Hero3 Cameras
  • Online Training Seminars for:
    Shooting with the different model camera holders
    Stitching with the different 360 Video and 360 Photo holders
    Playing your content via the web browsers and mobile players
    Hosting you content via the web

  • A FREE mobile player that will allow you to share your content via all the mobile devices for both 360 Video and 360 Photos.

Risks and challenges

This project has created many challenges along the way and we continue to hurdle over these issues everyday. One big hurtle we just tackled was finding the right material that was flexible yet rugged for a wide variety of environments and temperatures.

Based upon the new models we are starting to produce it appears that we have the correct combination, the models are secure for the cameras and rugged (See Stress Test Above).

The next biggest hurdle is shipping and over the world. We want to make sure you have your products in a timely manor and all the proper customs paper work completed for quicker delivery. Thanks to Federal Express, UPS and USPS we appear that have this all in proper order.

And finally manufacturing the different holders. Technology is changing everyday and our goals is to try and keep up with GoPro's changing cameras and support our customers along with way. Because we are using 3D printed models we can change with technology and customers needs as we move forward.
