You may use one of the many iphone panoramic apps that almost seamlessly stitch together multiple photographs to reveal a spectacular vista. Have you ever thought how cool it would be to bring these panoramas alive with video? Well, I've just discovered something that will do just that. It's called 'Dot', a little lens attachment for the iphone 4 that will let you capture panoramas in a whole new dimension - 'immersive, fully navigable, panoramic video in real time' i.e. gob-smackingly awesome 360 degree video. Just hold your iphone up, press record and hey presto! It's almost like the dodecacam. Thankfully, Dot is a minute fraction of the cost, and it fits in your pocket.
Imagine using one of these in the middle of a flock of feeding birds, or carefully placed (with some durable armour) amongst a herd of migrating wildebeest? Look at what was achieved with the Dodecacam during the BBC oceans series. Dot would be so much more portable and easier to use. I can't wait.
You can be first in line to receive one by 'pledging' through the Kickstarter site to assist them with gaining the funds to see Dot through to production.
