Foldio360 - A smart turntable to create 360 images with a smartphone
360˚ PHOTOGRAPHY FOR EVERYONE
Creating 360 images is really difficult without professional equipment. And all-in-one 360˚ photography systems cost thousands of dollars to purchase and hundreds of dollars to rent. For small business owners, bloggers, and online sellers, these costs make 360 image creation unaffordable.
Now the good news – we’ve created a way to bring 360˚ photography to everyone who owns a smartphone. No expensive 360˚ photography system needed anymore!
FOLDIO360 - IT'S YOUR TURN
Foldio360 is a smart turntable that allows you to create stunning 360 images.
All you need is the Foldio360, your smartphone, and a light box.
We designed the Foldio360 to be available for everyone, no matter if you are an amateur or professional photographer. Foldio360 is easy and simple to use, but creates high quality 360 pictures.
REWARDS & PLEDGES
Please help us spread our dream to create 3D content online environment where everyone can enjoy.
We’ve developed the most advanced, most accessible 360˚ photography system ever. Here’s what comes with the Foldio360:
AUTOMATIC SHOOTING SYSTEM
The Foldio360 uses Bluetooth and IR sensors to connect directly with your smartphone or DSLR camera. Open the Foldio360 app, setup your shot, and press start. The Foldio360 system will automatically rotate, take photos and combine them to create one final 360 image. It’s ridiculously simple, but incredibly awesome.
HALO EDGE™ LIGHT SYSTEM (Patent Applied For)
For this project, we’ve developed a new feature called Halo Edge to further enhance the quality of your 360 images. The Halo Edge light system is located on the rear of the Foldio360. When activated, this light helps to eliminate any boundary line caused by the platform of the Foldio360.
THE FOLDIO360 APP
We’re building iOS and Android apps so you can take full control of the Foldio360. We are designing the app with a focus on simplicity and accessibility to make it usable by everyone.
Control image resolution, brightness, color temperature, focus, and zoom. Activate the Halo Edge light system and control your Foldio360 device. Edit your 360 images directly on the app and manage your gallery of 360 images.
*Compatible with iOS, Android*
FOLDIO360 ONLINE IMAGE PLATFORM
Upload and store your photos onto Foldio360 Online. Link directly from your blog, online store, or Instagram to Foldio360 Online to show off your beautiful 360 images. Embed your images directly into your Wordpress, Shopify, or any other websites. Foldio360 Online integrates perfectly with your existing website, so you can share your 360 images easily. We’re super excited to see all the creative ways you decide to use the FOLDIO360.
Our goal was to design a product that anyone could use to easily create 360 images at home. For this reason, we've developed the Foldio360 at an affordable price, which is even less than existing photo turntables that only rotate.

HERE WE GO AGAIN
Previously, we launched the Foldio projects to unfold a whole new level of possibilities in smartphone photography. Thanks to your support, we successfully funded and delivered the original Foldio & Foldio2 portable studio systems.
They were a HUGE success and have helped thousands of photographers, collectors, and business owners take beautiful, studio-quality photos using just their smartphone.
We’re back with a new challenge – this time to bring our previous backers and new supporters the gift of 360 photography with the Foldio360. We believe that this project will be a catalyst for creating 3D image content for online environments.
ABOUT TEAM ORANGEMONKIE
We are a creative, dedicated team with members in California and Seoul. Our passion is finding new ways to harness and improve upon smartphone technology. So far, we have done this with two highly successful Kickstarter projects, the Foldio1 and Foldio2. Our motto, is “simple but useful”. We hope to empower photographers everywhere with simple, useful, and cost effective tools that they can use everyday for their business or hobby. Our projects are designed and developed completely in-house with lots of care. We thank you for supporting our new project.
Risks and challenges
After successfully funding and delivering 2 other Kickstarter projects, we realize how important it is to recognize and reduce the risks that come with creating new products. This is especially true for electronic hardware devices, which take more time and money to reach mass production scale.
Fortunately, our team has experience in delivering successful Kickstarter products. For the Foldio360, we have spent months developing the prototype and working with our electronics manufacturer to ensure production and delivery goes smoothly once this fundraiser is completed. As long as there is demand for the Foldio360, we do not foresee any issues that could greatly challenge manufacturing or delivery. And if anything comes up, we will solve it quickly and efficiently as we have always done.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
