Shot has taken to Kickstarter to raise just over €89,000 to help take their new iPhone lens that has been created to transform the Apple smartphone into a virtual reality camera into production.
Watch the video below to learn more about how the Shot functions and works with the companion application to help create virtual reality imagery.
In summary, Shot is a lens attachment composed of two lenses that increase the field of view of your phone’s camera, and an app that allows you to easily record and share immersive content.
It is as easy as opening the app, slide the lens attachment and start recording and sharing immersive videos and photos in one shot. The interface is similar to other apps like Instagram or Vine. Combined with a virtual reality headset, the Shot app allows you to look around and experience your photos and videos in a totally different way.
Create. Watch. Discover. All in a single app. Follow your friends and share your creations with them. Scroll through your friend’s photos and videos or discover popular content around the world. To watch the content the app includes several visualization modes:
– Preview mode: this is the first view mode you’ll see while scrolling through content. You’ll be able to look around in the photos and videos by moving and tilting the phone.
– Full screen mode: you’ll be able to look around a single photo or video in the same way as in preview mode but at full screen.
– Full screen mode with VR headset: this is the full immersive experience that requires you to put your phone in a VR headset. You’ll be able to look around by moving your head.
