360º Video Surveillance: Cool... on an iPhone 4, VERY COOL!

Watch the video first.
Use your mouse to move what you see to the left or right.

"The GoPano micro is a lens for the iPhone 4 to make 360º panoramic videos! Just snap the lens to your iPhone 4 and press record to make cool interactive 360º videos. Use it to record all the action of your favorite sport, record your next meeting in 360º or just as a fun toy for the summer.

The GoPano micro will record everything around you simultaneously. You can go back to the recorded video and choose to view any perspective, any angle at any point in time. The GoPano app allows you to upload your 360º video onto our web platform and share 360º videos with your friends. You can watch 360º videos uploaded by others in the app or on the web site. (the GoPano lens records everything simultaneously and not just the scene on the screen, you can pan & zoom in/out anywhere in your recorded video)."

Now, imagine the uses for this in the security field.
• Surveillance - Set it and forget it.
• Technical Surveillance (TS) - Comparison of room items and locations upon completion of installations.
• Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) - Comparison of room items and locations upon re-inspection.
• Crime scene documentation.
• Event management documentation.

You get the idea and I am sure you can come up with more.

Problem... You can't buy a GoPano for your iPhone 4, yet. But you can help this project get off the ground for a $50. contribution and get one free once they are manufactured. (more)
