Products We Love: Kogeto Dot

Kogeto DotWe here at Austin MacWorks love this nifty little video camera. The Kogeto Dot allows you to shoot 360° panoramic video from the palm of your hand.

Snap Dot onto your iPhone 4 or 4S, download the free Looker app, and instantly record fully immersive 360° videos right on your iPhone. Going to a concert? You can record the show and the audience. Heading out on a road trip? Leave Dot on the dashboard and record your highway adventures. No matter what you’re recording, Dot sees everything!

Watch your videos on your iPhone 4 or 4S by swiping your screen to virtually spin around, or switch modes and view them in panoramic widescreen. Looker allows you to instantly share your 360° world with friends and family (via email, Facebook, Twitter or Kogeto.com) right from the palm of your hand.

Kogeto’s compact and durable iCONIC lens works with the iPhone 4 / 4S HD video camera to capture full 360° video — all at once — without stitching frames together. Its unique catadioptric optical system is fully AR-coated for excellent color fidelity in all environments. Dot is a lightweight attachment that doesn’t require batteries or external power.

Dot comes with a microfiber pouch that doubles as a lens cloth.

  1. Can you post some pics? I was thinking about grabbing one of these, but I found using an app like 360 panorama renders much better results.

  2. You bet. Linked to some Kogeto videos and added a YouTube video.
