The Dot is a sweet Kickstarter project that’s been funded 4 times its goal. It’s a stylish, durable and pocket-sized 360º panoramic lens attachment and app for the iPhone 4. The device is made by Kogeto, the world’s most advanced panoramic video camera. The Dot lets you capture fully navigable, panoramic video in realtime and share your content with your friends on your social networks or stream it online using Koget.
The Koget guys are excited: “We’d rather put down the camera and enjoy the party. We’re making a bet you will too…Our secret beta testers have already had a lot of fun taking it to concerts, the park, on moped rides in Italy, and showing cramped apartments to mothers halfway around the world… We’ve spent the past few months researching, designing, prototyping and coding. This means we have working hardware and software prototypes.”

The Kickstarter project has raised over $80,000, which is 4 times its goal amount of $20,000. So it looks like we’ll have the cutting-edge (read: magical) panoramic technology soon!
Preorder it here ($98).
