GoPano Micro: 360-degree video recording with your iPhone 4

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2011

You can already capture still photos in 360 degrees, but what you really want is a way to capture panoramic video as well. Us too. And we aren’t the only ones. That’s why EyeSee360 has given the iPhone 4 the ability to record video in 360-degrees with the GoPano Micro.

It consists of a case for your iPhone, a detachable 360-degree lens(Obviously), and the GoPano app. It will allow you to do a circular pan with the simple swipe of a finger. How fancy is that? Looks like it has met its $20,000 funding goal, so we should be seeing this very soon. Awesome.

Nintendo 3DS could get 3D video recording in the future

In a recent interview about the 3DS, Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that the company wants to include 3D video in the future. Obviously that’s no guarantee that this feature will be added to the handheld’s 3D camera, but we might just find ourselves shooting low-res 3D video with the 3DS at some point in the future if all goes well.

I don’t know about you, but I would rather have them concentrate on battery life, so we can play for longer.

Verizon DROID Incredible gets 720p HD video recording

Posted in HTC by Conner Flynn on July 2nd, 2010

Verizon’s DROID Incredible is about to get a bit more incredible with 720p HD video recording capability and 3G Wi-Fi hotspot functionality through a firmware update. Neither feature is available on the DROID Incredible right now and HTC has not released any information on the potential of either inclusion when asked about it.

We will just have to wait and see. There’s no official word on when the firmware update will be announced or released just yet. The current Droid Incredible has a 800 x 480 resolution for video recording. A jump to 720p is pretty amazing.
