I’ve written several times this year about the fast growing development pace of 360º Immersive video devices and platforms. You can read the previous posts here and here

I picked up a story today on Twitter from PetaPixel about Kogeto, makers of DOT 360º Adapter for iPhone

who have successfully crowd funded a new “professional” grade 360º camera – the Joey via Kickstarter.

Its full price RRP is expected to be $1400 placing it at the top of the range of 360º Cameras I’ve been watching. You’ll note it uses just one camera with a special panoramic sphere lens to capture the image, unlike many of the others who use multiple cameras and “stitch” the image together either within the device or after upload to a server running 360º stitching software.

Interestingly Kogeto founder Jeff Glasse makes a point of saying the Joey is designed with immersive consumption in mind using devices like the Oculus Rift.

Joey has already reached its funding goal so you can expect to see it available early to mid 2015.

    if you used Kogeto on iPhone you already see why this will fail…reflection in plastic/glass cylinder that holds mirror will make all that useless (others use different system without glass cylinder)…
