Kogeto Dot captures 360 degree videos with your iPhone


kogetodotmain2Kogeto has released an “appcessory” which allows iPhone users to shoot amazing 360 degree videos and share it with friends and family on social networks.

The Kogeto Dot is an attachment that snaps on to your iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S and positions its special catadioptric optical system exactly above the device’s camera.

With panoramic mode so popular on the latest digital cameras, the Dot can go one step further and turn that panoramic view into a 360 degree video.

The video is captured using the free accompanying app called Looker and then you’re able to share it on Facebook and Twitter.

Users can also share their videos through the Looker app’s panoramic video sharing platform DotSpots.

It is ideal for capturing action or beautiful views and anything else you can think of.

Set up is easy. Once you’ve downloaded the free Looker app simply attach the Kogeto Dot to the iPhone.

The Kogeto Dot is available in four colours - black, red, pink and green

Users can then calibrate the Dot so the lens is positioned precisely to capture their videos.

Then it’s time to use your imagination to get the most out of the Kogeto Dot.

You can view some example videos at Kogeto Dotspots.

Once your video is completed it can be viewed in 360 degrees by hitting the play button and then dragging the screen to the left or right to appreciate to entire circular view.

The Kogeto Dot is available now and the price has just been slashed from $99.95 to $59.95.
