    Default New app uses iPhone’s vibrate motor to take hands-free 360-degree video.



    Up until now, if you wanted to shoot 360-degree video with your iPhone, you’d either need a snap-on accessory, like the GoPano, or a pair of steady hands and some patience. But a clever new app is looking to change that.

    Introducing Cycloramic, an iPhone app that uses the handset’s built-in vibrate motor to spin it around in a circle, allowing you to capture 360-degree video, completely hands free



    The concept here is pretty simple. After loading up the app on your iPhone, you must balance the handset upright on a flat surface (as you can imagine, it has to be really flat for this to work) and press the “GO” button.

    Cycloramic works its magic by making the phone vibrate at just the right frequencies to force it into a steady a twirl. And the handset will continue to spin in a circle, while recording video, until you press the “STOP” button.

    Your phone must be set to vibrate, on both Silent and Ring profiles, for the app to function properly. And while the app is compatible with the iPhone 4 and 4S, they don’t tend to spin as well as the iPhone 5 due to their sizes.

    If you want to check out Cycloramic for yourself, you can find it in the App Store for $0.99.

    Personally I wouldn't want to risk damaging my phone's screen trying to get it to stay straight up, but this is a really innovative idea.

    What do you think, is this a good idea or just a cheap gimmick?

    So you mean that it will not tip over ?

    Not everyone uses a case though. I personally can't stand big bulky cases.

    In the video the iPhone 5 does not tip over, so yes, it should not. As I said in the post I wouldn't use this for fear of it doing so, but it should not tip as long as it's on a flat service.
