About this project
Treat yourself. Get the present you really wanted for Christmas........
Let's start with the video demos. That's what it is all about after all. First, this is the full HD version of the video above for full screen viewing.
Click here for our interactive demos. Our software processes video in real time in the web browser version, with mobile real time processing to follow. The webpage will automatically redirect to either an online viewer for desktop computers, or the free app for Apple iOS or Android users.
This is a demo just showing the viewer in action if you have a slower computer or if you want to see what you can view without downloading our free apps.
As seen on
This GP360 will fit on all models including and after the GoPro 1. It comes in two different varieties the GP360A and GP360B. See below for GoPro compatibility.
This shows how easily our lens can fit on a standard video camera.
The product, how does it work?
The Eye Mirror Lens can simply screw onto the front of your video camera or DSLR. Using the compact adapter pictured below you can use your compact camera. The GP360 GoPro version has its own GoPro style housing that you can simply put the camera into.
The EyeMirror lens allows you to shoot interactive 360º degree video we call EyeVids or 360º still images. Simply point your camera up and start recording. Once you have finished shooting simply upload your video to our web site and then you can share links to your friends and family.
View the 360s with no processing immediately on your own computer, either PC, Mac, Apple IOS , Android or even on your Oculus Rift with head tracking!!! Software will be free, except for viewing on the Oculus (£55/$89) fee. But if we reach our stretch goal of £100,000 ($163,000). Will be free and refund all those who paid for it.
Oculus Rift Demo.
Resolution is everything for a virtual video environment. We currently have the highest resolution consumer 360 video device when our GP360 lens is partnered with the GoPro 3 black (+) and our firmware modification. High resolution is essential to drive the Oculus.
We also deploy advanced techniques that simulate the 3D environment in a very realistic way to make 360x3D. This simulation also doubles the resolution without stretching the image. This then delivers close to double Quad HD per eye or 14xHD of data for the Oculus display to manipulate with our software. This is the same as a total of 22MP at 22 FPS or 11MP per eye.
Our Oculus viewer samples the video at around 60 FPS for head movement. So the video will not be jerky as you move your head.
If your are a bit more tech savvy, use the free web viewer on your own web site, or place the viewer in your a blog on platforms like Wordpress or Facebook. The mirror is made from the finest material to maximize quality. We have really pushed the technology. The mirror shape uses RMT (Radial Manipulation Technology) to achieve the sharp picture.
Showing that with our compact adapter you can fit the "Eye Mirror 1" to just about any camera.
To use you GoPro camera you will need to do a small modification to your camera. See video below, or you can send the camera in to us and we will do it for you for a £40 ($60) charge including return shipping. For GoPro Black (+), White (+) and GoPro 1, you will need a custom lens for the camera that we manufacture. This lens can be used without our mirror attachment for non fisheye shots that reduces the typical GoPro warped images. You can also swap the lens back easily to the original GoPro lens. For other GoPro version you can use your original lens, once you have loosened it.
The cameras firmware modification only works on the GoPro black and black+. This allows you to shoot at 3040x3040 running at 22FPS. Without this modification you would only get 14FPS running at 2160×2160 or 1524x1524 @ 30FPS (effective resolution). Its very simple to install, you just copy a file to your SD card. If you do not want to use the firmware modification you just delete the file on your SD card and the camera is returned to normal.
As a thank you to ordering here and you will receive your products around 4 months before we have our general release.

Risks and challenges
Eye Mirror has spent the last 2 years designing, prototyping and testing and we just need your help to finish of the final few things. With your pre-orders this will help us to be able to pay for a custom coating that we need for the outside and inside of the GP360. This is the only thing that could cause delays, but we have already sourced two suppliers who will produce a coating and go head to head in a quality test. Should have results within 1 month of receiving the Kickstarter funds.
75% of the tooling is already finished. Your funding will help complete the last 25%.
* The dollar prices quoted on this page are US dollars. The value is an approximate conversion amount of the UK pound sterling value of the rewards.
