Cycloramic app turns iPhone 5s into a hands-free 360-degree panoramic camera

Egos Ventures, an Atlanta, Georgia-based company has created an app called Cycloramic. The app makes use of the high-quality camera and vibrating motor in the iPhone 5 and 5s to create a hands-free 360-degree video camera. Thanks to the flat edges and balanced weight distribution of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, Cycloramic is able to use the handsets’ vibrating motors to actually physically rotate the devices on a flat surface while recording. This means that the phones are able to record video or capture panoramic photographs without any user intervention. Just place it on a flat surface, tap a button, and the phone will slowly rotate 360 degrees as it captures video or a panoramic photo.
