About this project

Hey Kickstarter-onians,

Thanks for checking out our project! We call it Dot

It’s a stylish, durable and downright pocketable 360º (panoramic) lens attachment and app for the iPhone 4.

What does it do? 

Dot lets your iPhone capture immersive, fully navigable, panoramic video in real-time  - and share with friends on your phone, as well as on Facebook and Twitter, or streamed online using our awesome panoramic video web platform and player.

Cool, right?

We're excited too. Why? Because we're uber lazy, and we'd rather put down the camera and enjoy the party. We're making a bet you will too. (Not that we think you're lazy...)

But seriously, our secret beta testers have already had a lot of fun taking it to concerts, the park, on moped rides in Italy, and showing cramped apartments to mothers halfway around the world.

So? Well, up until recently it took major moolah and hefty gear to make a decent panoramic video. Now all you need is your phone and the world around you.

We haven’t slept much.

We’ve spent the past few months researching, designing, prototyping and coding.  This means we have working hardware and software prototypes. Now we need your help to finish the 2nd phase of engineering around the lens and begin tooling for volume production.

Let's do it!

We’re excited to bring our cutting-edge (read: magical) panoramic technology to a much wider audience – and even more excited to see what you guys will do with it.

Thanks for your support.
