Cameras have invaded gadgets in a big way. Practically all the gadgets that have been coming out in the last few years have a camera wedged in there somewhere. At this point, any device that doesn’t have a camera is considered an “incomplete” product. Just look at the first iPad and the flak it got for not having a camera when it was released.
But even though cameras are considered a basic feature for many devices, it can still be improved. That’s why it’s no surprise that the BubbleScope was released. Consider this device an upgrade of sorts to the built in camera of your smartphone.
What the BubbleScope does is to allow you to take a 360 degree photo or video using the existing camera of your smartphone. The BubbleScope will also come with a BubblePix app that will be used in conjunction with the hardware accessory.
The BubbleScope was invented by Tom Lawton. He purposely made the BubbleScope a very handy and easy to use gadget. You can take a 360 degree image or video with just a click. This is true 360 degree imaging as it will reportedly not involve any kind of image stitching to provide the all encompassing view that the BubbleScope promises. The app provided will also provide additional features like real time preview. It also provides an easy way for your to share the creative photographs you take online.
The BubbleScope has been cleverly designed to fit almost all smartphones. Usually it will only take a simple change in the phone’s case to attach the accessory to the phone (if you’re the type who uses phone cases).
The BubbleScope is still at the last stages of development – fine tuning the product’s features and usability. But it’s already available for pre-order.
