Cycloramic: Captures 360 Degree Video by Rotating Your iPhone Using Vibrations

A new iPhone app, dubbed Cycloramic, has been released that will allow you to shoot hands free, panoramic 360-degree video. It does it without any special accessories or peripherals. How does it do it? It vibrates your iPhone, DUH!

9to5Mac:

Normally, shooting 360-degree video would require the help of a hardware peripheral, such as the GoPano micro, or some crafty manual handwork to maneuver the device 360 degrees. With the new Cycloramic app from Egos Ventures, the iPhone will self-spin around by vibrating at certain frequencies. This allows you to capture hands-free, 360-degree video without a tripod or stand. The video above speaks for itself. 

The developers do warn that the iPhone must be place upright on a flat, hard surface, and you can’t have a case or stand on the iPhone. Also, while they say it will work with an iPhone 4S, it’s really designed to work best with the iPhone 5.

Cycloramic is available in the App Store right now for $0.99. (DIRECT LINK)
